Attaching the output of a 'cvs diff' to the bug
report should be sufficient. I am not going to
worry too much about line endings and can easliy
strip them if needed.

Well, we will need to rewrite the header to be one
of the real committers, but if you could provide
the text of the log entry, that would be much

I am not able to answer this question. I do not
have the ability to do any of the Windows builds
myself as I do not have any system running Windows
nor do I have any 'compiler' or 'make' which would
run on a Windows platform unless it might be gcc
with Cygwin, but it is intended that the Windows
CVS client should not depend upon Cygwin.

Is anyone else able to answer Nelson's question?
Will we be able to generate a Windows binary for
use of CVS users after we accept his patch?
