I know that some years back I was able to "apt-get install cvs" on a
Linux box (could have been on a RaspberryPi or else a VMWare virtual
machine running Mint or the like.
And that cvs would be the backported cvsnt version!

Since we are using a cvs.exe binary from 2006 on our server I realized
that it would be great to be able to get that onto my new Ubuntu
Server and have it parse the repository (CVSNT always kept the format
line-ending-wise anyway, so the repository files are compatible.

But it seems like it is not possible anymore to get the cvs from the
cvsnt project into a Linux box...

Or is there some way to do it?

I belive we have used some cvsnt specific constructs, like setting
-kbx on some binary files requiring exclusive editing etc.
