Daily use of TortoiseCVS: A guide to the commonly used functions of the TortoiseCVS client for source code management on the CropForge collaborative software development site.

Abstract

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.
