since you've been following the mailing list, you probably noticed that
we'll take all the help we can get for the MS SQL support. So welcome :-)

The addslashes() abuse is a hole that we dug ourselves into over the
years and that isn't easy to fix without breaking things elsewhere. So
be careful there.

Randy Kolenko wrote the current MS SQL layer - he can probably chime in
with some of his experiences.

I'm not on Windows, but many people here are. Surely it can't be that
hard to get a CVS client working on Windows? What exactly isn't working
for you?

We also have a CVS notification list, if that helps:


Since we're nearing a release, the amount of CVS changes should be
slowing down now.

Thanks for your efforts. I'm sure we can find a way to sync your work
with ours.
