The Concurrent Versioning System (CVS) enables developers to work concurrently by using the copy-modify-merge model. Developers download a working copy of the source code from a CVS server, make changes, and subsequently upload those changes into the CVS repository. The source code is usually in a directory tree that contains the files that make up the software project.
This manual describes the steps needed to create an initial local copy of the source code from a CVS repository located on the CropForge server. The client software used is TortoiseCVS.
