Why not just keep the CVS installation the same on your server and install
CVSNT on your Windows machines?  This is the setup that I'm using and it
works just fine.

Subject: Running standard CVS and CVSNT on the same repository?

I run a CVS server on FreeBSD, currently cvs v1.11.5 because that's what
came with my FreeBSD installation.  I access this server from the same
FreeBSD box, from another FreeBSD box, and from an assortment of Windows
machines, currently all using standard CVS under Windows.

I'm wondering if I can install CVSNT on the server FreeBSD box and start
letting Windows machines use that as their server instead of the standard
CVS on that box, without causing problems such as repository corruption,
incompatible repository changes made by one server and unreadable by the
other, etc.  I assume I'd be fine suddenly making everyone use the CVSNT
server, but then I'd be worried about updates to FreeBSD itself, which might
make use of the stock CVS.

Comments welcome.
