    CVS is a version control system that keeps track of changes to code and, among other things, allows multiple people to work on the same project without overwriting eachother's changes as much.

    What do you want to know about it? And why are you asking in the PHP forum?

    I would recommend Subversion instead of CVS. Subversion fixes a lot of issues that CVS has and is slowly replacing all instances of it. They are almost identical too. If your on Windows a great way to get started is to try out TortoiseSVN.

    I've used both CVS and SVN on large projects and never had any problems with CVS. I had many with SVN, from mysterious locking problems (and this was with a recent version), to conflicts it refused to resolve even when I told it they were resolved.
