Describes the Concurrent Versions System (cvs) program, which facilitated multiple developers and developer groups working on software projects composed of multiple directories and modules. Used RCS (file versioning), additional metadata for a cvs repository, and 3-way merge. Describes use in operating system development (SunOS), including merging large sets of changes from another development group (BSD).
