General Development CVS, part of the glue that holds open source development together, shows its age. Many competitors have emerged recently, fixing misfeatures and adding new ideas. Shlomi Fish (of the version control comparison fame) explores several current open source version control systems that may be better than CVS for your needs. Email Shlomi on how to add info for your favorite VCS on his comparison page.

Going beyond Subversion and CVS
by Steven Haryanto on Sat 31st Jan 2004 08:27 UTC

I am a happy Subversion user too. It beats CVS anytime for all my needs.

However, we really need to move on from a centralized model (1 repository per project) like CVS/Subversion to a distributed model (1 repository per developer) like Arch/Darcs/monotone. Centralized repository is a hassle for open souce development model. Imagine Linux being developed by CVS/Subversion instead of Bitkeeper; I think Linux will still be in 2.2.x releases ;)
