CVS - Getting started
CVS is a sourcecode version control system, which is just about the best thing which can ever happen to a software project. CVS gives you the power to manage the development of your sourcecode and keep track of changes in the code.
Below there’s a few pointers to the net, where you can find lots of information about CVS and the add-on tools which supplies it. The section called “local content” is our own attempt to add something to the endless pages describing and explaing how to use CVS. Enjoy.
