Re: CVS patch for cygwin

Last time I checked, which was admittedly some years ago now, wincvs was
just a gui wrapper that shelled out to a commandline cvs client to do the
actual work for it. So isn't the real problem that you're using the wrong cvs
client software with wincvs, i.e. you're using a cvsnt client instead of the
cygwin cvs client?
WinCVS uses the "CVSNT" (fork of cvs) package, because it depends on
some gui-integration feature of CVSNT for its functionality. I've tried
to make it use the Cygwin cvs, but it no work so good with that.
CVSNT = CVS 1.11.something + NT-specific changes + refactoring of
authentication mechanisms into separate loadable libraries + some random
enhancements (like the -gui switch to output additional info to
integrate to GUIs..)
