  Concurrent Versions System
      (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.
