I have know of folks that used a mirror of the same repository on both
Windows and GNU/Linux boxes with no problems which is close to
equivalent. Problems only arise with the use of the scripting for the
various commit triggers in the CVSROOT. You need to be careful how you
setup your commitinfo, verfifymsg, loginfo triggers to work properly in
both modes.

Sure, it is possible and with some care it should be feasible. However,
you may find it is more sane to use CVSNT for both instead of just for
the WinXP box in this case. Otherwise is may be difficult for you to
have a consistent set of configuration files for commits.

Note that address@hidden is not really about CVSNT questions, so you
probably want to look into for more answers.
