That is incorrect - CVSNT are 5 letters, and that is all.
Since about version 2.0.58 CVSNT has supported both reserved and unreserved
versioning (-kx means 'reserved'). The CVSNT project has generally not
limited it's features to those that support a particular ideology or
methodology - rather to provide versioning tools that are useful for the
widest number of people and processes.
I know some people never updated CVSNT beyond 2.0.51 who strongly disagreed
with our decision to support reserved versioning in CVSNT.
I've rather taken lately to describing CVSNT as NoT CVS, I think it
communicates fairly clearly that CVSNT is somehow related to CVS but does
have considerably different features...
