It's attributed to firstname.lastname@example.org (who turns out to be Bil Simser of
Calgary, Pascal guy; verbose weblog here: http://members.home.net/bsimser/).
Simser's document in turn called my attention to command-line and goo-ey
Win32 implmentations of cvs.exe directly from cyclic.com -- whose file
locations Simser has wrong. They should be:
They're in the middle of migrating to cvshome.org, so the following may
be better in the long term:
Either Simser's technique, or improvements in the standard cvs.exe, or
both _apparently_ make Gordon Chaffee's patch no longer necessary. (I
haven't looked into that.)
There are also some alternative goo-ey Win32 CVS clients: WinCVS (see:
...ICE Engineering's (Tim Endres's) Java-based jCVS (includes daemon code,
has SSH tips at
