Concurrent Versions System
<programming> (CVS) A cross-platform code management system originally
based on RCS.
CVS tracks all revisions to a file in an associated file with the same name as
the original file but with the string ",v" (for version) appended to the
filename. These files are stored in a (possibly centralised) repository.
Changes are checked in or "committed" along with a comment (which appears in the
the "commit log"). CVS has the notions of projects, branches, file locking and
many others needed to provide a full-functioned repository.
It is commonly accessed over over its own "anonCVS" protocol for read-only
access (many open source projects are available by anonymous CVS) and over the
SSH protocol by those with commit privileges ("committers").
CVS has been rewritten several times and does not depend on RCS. However, files
are still largely compatible; one can easily migrate a project from RCS to CVS
by copying the history files into a CVS repository. A sub-project of the OpenBSD
project is building a complete new implementation of CVS, to be called OpenCVS.
