Follow-up Comment #2, patch #5053 (project cvs):

I was just looking over at the CVSNT source and they already
provide a 'passwd' command. So, it would probably be good to
ensure that anything added to CVS will either interoperate
correctly, or be called something else completely. I suggest
you update your patch so that it avoids the name "passwd" at
present to avoid interoperation problems with CVSNT clients
and servers.

Options on the CVSNT 'passwd' command are apparently as

  -a              Add user
  -x              Disable user
  -X              Delete user
  -r real_user    Alias username to real system user
  -R              Remove alias to real system user
  -D domain       Use domain password

You may use the command:

    cvs -d :pserver:cvs@cvs.cvsnt.org:/usr/local/cvs checkout cvsnt

to checkout the CVSNT sources. Documentation of the CVSNT
client/server protocol should be in doc/cvsclient.dbk (XML
document text).

Note that it will also be desirable for your patch to add
the documentation for the 'passwd' protocol to the
doc/cvsclient.texi file.
