One thing you may find is that any CVSNT access control and file permission
lists will be lost (effectively - classic CVS doesn't recognize those .owner
and .perms files), so if you were using those features extensively, you have
a bit of porting work. You will have to set up Unix groups, file ownerships
and permissions in the Unix repository accordingly.
