I got a problem using a cvs pserver root as all the files are missing the fields enumerated in the subject.

I rsynced the same repository into a local repository of the redmine server and the problem is gone. But I'd like to avoid to rsync on this server.

Using cvs in command line for rls and rlog I was unable to find a difference that would explain the wrong behavior with pserver.

I'll try to reproduce this at home woth a repository without sensible data.

Ok I'm late but it seems that using the required GNU cvs on an orignal cvs repository is the problem.

This is a problem when you don't have the control of the cvs version of the remote repository.

Any chance to make it compatible with non GNU cvs ?

I had a very similar Issue, when I was using a GNU CVS client in combination with a CVSNT server (though, I'm not sure, if this combiation caused the error). The problem and the solution is described here -> If this also helps you, maybe we should integrate this as a patch then.

Could you please put the patch right here? Call me stupid, but I cannot find actual code under bitnami link you've quoted.
