Hello Ranchers,

I want to install a CVS in my own machine. I have successfully installed the CVS, but i could not proceed further in configuring the CVS like adding users, configuring repository details etc.

Is there anyone who involved in installation and configuration of CVS? Please guide me with any useful URLs so that i can go through.

I am actually looking for the opensource version control tools and not the proprietary as its for self-learning purpose

Thanks in advance.

The definitive text on CVS is cederqvist. It's pretty easy to read and understand, considering that CVS can be quite frustrating. Plenty of simple examples showing the different ways you can set things up.

Note that CVS isn't really well-suited as a repository for a user machine. When you check a project out, it contains metadata that only permits check-in to the same machine (this is true of subversion, too). So you can't check a project out of a central repository, keep changes in a local repository, then check back into the central repository.

Hello Tim,

Many thanks for the link. I shall go through and get back for the clarifications if any.

I could not understand your statement stating that the CVS is not well appropriate for the user machine. Why is it so? since because both the Server and Client of CVS residing in the same machine?

Because usually you want the CVS server to be accessible to other users as well, so it's better to put it in a central location where your infrastructure person(s) can keep it maintained. If are the one and only user, it's no problem to put the server on the same machine as the client.

Thanks for the clarifying and confirming my assumption on the same Tim.
