Synopsis

The beauty of open source is making code freely available. The curse is trying to organize the chaos that code development can evolve into. CVS, the Concurrent Version System, is an open source tool for managing and distributing source code. It allows multiple users dispersed over a wide geographic area to work on the same file at the same time, using a shared directory. Under CVS, multiple users can check out files from a directory tree, make changes, and then commit those changes back into the directory. CVS is a pivotal tool on many projects involving information or software, whether in-house or conducted over the Internet. The "CVS Pocket Reference" is a quick reference guide to help administrators and users set up and manage source code development. This book delivers the core concepts of version control along with a complete command reference and guide to configuration and repository set up.

The book includes: a version control primer that teaches the general concepts of version control and how it applies to CVS; instructions on how to install and configure CVS for Unix -like operating systems; administrator and user sections, with complete listings of their respective commands and options for configuring and using CVS; details on how to import files from RCS and SCCS directories into CVS.; and references to related useful materials. Much more than a quick list of commands and options, the book is packed with detail - including an overview of background concepts, thorough descriptions on how to use and administer a CVS repository, and discussions of CVS-related files and how to manage them - all in a convenient reference format. This edition covers the CVS 1.11 and includes new commands for querying a central CVS repository, new configuration parameters, and new options for setting up a server for remote access. It also contains tips on common tasks, such as converting projects from other revision control formats to CVS.
