Just a little more clarification...  

This really belongs on the EVS newsgroup - it's got nothing to do with
CVSNT.  I've already written lengthy articles on the EVS newsgroup about
this - in partiular this one:

In the simplest terms, the goals of the EVS project are:
1. to build a LGPL framework for writing version control systems
2. to build an edition of CVSNT with better rename/tag and no RCS (EVS)
3. to write a 'CM Server' using EVSAPI which supports CVS, CVSNT and SVN
(and VSTS), Web and WebDAV clients and built in defect tracking 

What you have been building on Debian is EVS + EVSAPI (#1&#2 above).
EVS itself is a very functional and useful SCM tool and some CVSNT users
may want to upgrade to EVS + EVSAPI particularly on Debian I think.  For
instance our own cvs.cvsnt.org server runs on debian and we'd like to
upgrade that to EVS some time next year and we've no requirement to
allow SVN/VSTS/Web/WebDAV clients.

Tony and I are looking to the millions of CVSNT users to see if they
will support the Free Software model or if they are just looking for
