Quick note that Brian Fitzpatrick, who coauthored the O’Reilly Press ‘Version Control with Subversion’ has written a piece at ONLamp.com with ten Subversion tips for CVS users.
You can find the article here. (http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/onlamp/2004/08/19/subversiontips.html).
I have hung onto CVS longer than most as it is now been relegated to the back pages by Subversion. As I migrate to the newer version control – this piece and Fitzpatrick’s book have been very helpful.
