Hi Norman,

What version of CVS server are you using?  In particular is it 1.11,
1.12 or 2.0, 2.5, 2.8 (CVSNT)?

The cvswrappers file defines the 'default' mode for files added to the
repository, this mode can be many things including binary or non-binary.
Eg: with CVSNT it can specify unicode, ascii, binary, efficient binary,
unix-line-endings, windows-line-endings, reserved mode, unreserved

But under 'default' circumstances - any settings in 'cvswrappers' can be
overridden by the client.  Again if using CVSNT (on
windows/linux/hpux/solaris/mac) you can set the server compatibility
options to 'ignore client side kopt' so that the cvswrappers settings
are always used.

Does that help?
