General Development CVS is a tool to record, manage and distribute different versions of files. In other words, CVS is a version control system. It allows easy collaborative work, as each of the contributors can work in his local copy at the same time, without fear of overriding each other modifications. It allows the recovery of past versions (useful for tracking bugs), the creation of branches (for experimental development or for releases) and more.

Hi thanks for the guide. We're testing Subversion for use with as an alternative to CVS and it is pretty nice. Version 1 is coming out in a few weeks at which point things will stabilize. I hear SourceForge is also thinking of switching but that's probably just a rumor. The web inteface is pretty bare but you can tweak it with XSLT.
