The dependencies are listed and available for download on the downlaods

Please don't be perplexed - ask questions... The CVSNT newsgroup (not
the CVS one) is the best place for questions about CVSNT:

Please read this FAQ before submitting a support request:

In case you do not already know - CVSNT runs on Linux, OS X or what have
you too...

> I see no purpose for CVSNT to exist anymore. 

Feature comparisons against CVS, SVN etc are here:

SCM is ultimately about configuration management practice not tools, if
another tool supports your process better then use it.  

The CVSNT project endeavours to deliver open source versioning tools
that facilitates good CM process.  Hence ACL's, Audit, Mergepoints
(Merge Tracking), True Rename (not copy+delete), Unicode filenames,
Unicode Merge etc.

None of those features are yet to make it into SVN:

The "commercial" verions of CVSNT aim to deliver features that are
mostly significant to commercial implementations of SCM such as 24 hour
support, defect tracking integration, build integration etc.
