I am new to this list, but I have checked the archives and as far as I could
see, until now there was nothing similar to my idea discussed.

The situation I have is the following.

Together with some friends of mine I am developing to win a small contest at
our university. We are 4 persons and thus we decided to use CVS to manage
our sources. For the Repository we used the server of a friend of us who
said he would not be taking part in this contest. But now he is taking part
an he obviously stole code from our CVS-Repository.

This brought us to the idea if it is possible to store crypted sources in a
CVS-Repository without losing the funktionality of diffs etc. Of course it
would be absolutely easy to encrypt everything and store them binary.

I thought about this, and came to the conclusion that this would be possible
by only changing the client.

If the source is encrypted line by line, diff will still work and decryption
may find place at the client.

Does anybody think a solution to this problem would be interesting to other
people than to us? If yes, I might try to develop something like this.
