- cvs: Concurrent Versions System
CVS is a version control system, which allows you to keep access
to old versions of files (usually source code), keep a log of
who, when, and why changes occurred, etc., like RCS or SCCS.
It handles multiple developers, multiple directories, triggers to
enable/log/control various operations, and can work over a wide
area network. The texinfo manual provides further information on
more tasks that it can perform.
There are some tasks that are not covered by CVS. They can be done in
conjunction with CVS but will tend to require some script-writing and
software other than CVS. These tasks are bug-tracking, build management
(that is, make and make-like tools), and automated testing. However,
CVS makes these tasks easier.
This package contains a CVS binary which can act as both client and
server, although there is no CVS dæmon; to access remote repositories,
please use :extssh: not :pserver: any more.
