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 basic interaction with a CropForge CVS repository that is needed on a daily basis (e.g., update, commit, add, delete). It also addresses some more advanced topics in source code management (e.g., tagging, branching, merging) and release management.
