------- Additional Comments From bclarke@booksys.com  2004-11-22 21:04 -------
It's not a CVSNT bug but rather an intentional omission as they seem to prefer
storing passwords in the windows registry. For those like me who spent way too
much time trying to figure out a "supported" CVSNT workaround for this:

Instead of using the cvspass task and passfile attributes on your cvs task just
add the password to your repository path like so:

:pserver:USER:PASSWORD@server:/path/to/cvsroot

or I suppose you could put the passfile contents in the registry directly if you
needed to do it that way (for instance, if you only had access to a passfile and
not the password itself):

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\cvsnt\cvspass

A note in the ant documentation for the cvs passfile attribute might be appropriate.
