The CVS versions do not support the CVSNT -ku Unicode
extension at this time.

If someone wishes to provde a patch with test cases to port that CVSNT
feature to CVS, please feel free to submit the patch to address@hidden

For now, you could download the CVSNT sources to your linux host and
built and use it there. It should work fine.

        Good luck,
