CVSNT is a more modern and feature rich version of CVS - and is still open
source.  The company which I work for provide professional support and
parter with the open source team to create new ports and new features.

We recently ported CVSNT to Mac OS X.

On Windows CVSNT supports Windows native authentication and we would like
our OS X port to also support "native" authentication.  If you can assist
(even with your knowledge of Mac authentication methods) please contact me
and I'll put you in touch with a more technical person in our organisation.

You can download cvsnt from our web site:

Information about professional support, training and installation is also
available at this address.
