Using the setup program at sourceforge makes setting
up cvs, ssh real easy with wincvs.  Pitty they don't
link to that program in their docs.

We could easily modify it to change the setup details

Using cygwin + cvs + ssh is even easier imho.

Is the current problem with pserver, or the email
script not putting in the correct name?

When doing cvs log does it show the correct name?

No comments on using sourceforge for cvs instead?
