This newsgroup is not related to the DCVS project.

If you have a DCVS specific question I suggest you contact that
project/vendor directly.

Repository replication can be a contentious topic.

CVS was designed for use on networks much slower than todays, and so
therefore operates well in a multi site environment without the need for
repository replication.

However there are some good business reasons for repository replication
and there are various tools to help you do that, eg: cvsup, drbd, rsync,
unison.  However none of these will give you specifically what you are
asking for.

CVSNT (free/GPL for Unix/Linux, Windows etc) supports in-built basic
repository replication and access control for free or you can contact
the company I work that wrote CVSNT to implement a more comprehensive
solution closer to what you have asked for.  There are many CVS
consultants who will implement multi site solutions for you in addition
to us listed here:

However let me stress - CVS does not require repository replication in
order to allow teams of people at multiple locations to efficiently use
the server.  Replication strategies should address a business
requirement (eg: disaster recovery) and be designed to address those
requirements and have a tangible cost/benefit.

The core requirement of your versioning system is NOT replication, so if
you do require support - in my opinion a solution from Ximbiot or March
Hare who have developed CVS/CVSNT for many years for the open source
community and have intimate knowledge and of the underlying foundations
will serve you best.

Dear friends,

Recently I configured one cvs server.
As cvs is not supporting multiple repository syncronisation,I forced to
go by
DCVS(distributed cvs) software.
Client(wincvs) to DCvs server connection establishing, which protocol I
should use?
I was using pserver protocol for cvs server
Is this sufficient for DCVS also.How?
For doing this , In client side anything else we need to specify?
