CVS is the Concurrent Versions System, the dominant open-source network-transparent version control system. CVS is useful for everyone from
individual developers to large, distributed teams:
-Its client-server access method lets developers access the latest code from anywhere there's an Internet connection.
-Its unreserved check-out model to version control avoids artificial conflicts common with the exclusive check-out model.
-Its client tools are available on most popular platforms.
CVS is used by popular open-source projects like Mozilla, the GIMP, XEmacs, KDE, and GNOME.
