Well it's a tradeoff.. losing some to gain a few who can fund the
project. It only affects the builds we make, so the various linux
versions etc. will not have the message. We already (I think) told
Torsten how to disable it in TortoiseCVS as well.
We already posted how to switch it off once on this list already, for
the more observant :)
Ultimately evs is the answer - its versions are differentiated and the
free version is clearly a trial. OTOH it serves a different audience.
There's a need for both products to continue, and making people aware
that there even *is* a commercial version of cvsnt (given that only
about .01% of the users actually frequent this list) is tricker.
