Hi all!

I've got a programming project looming at school and I'm looking at using cvs to synchronize source with my lab-partner. But no matter how much we look around we can't find ANY information on running the server part of CVS, how to get it running, how to do things against a remote server etc. ! This whole thing is driving us slightly crazy because it seems like half the information on CVS has just DISAPPEARED. Has anyone worked all this out before? I'd REALLY REALLY appreciate all help!

"A compelling replacement for CVS"

There are docs. The original stuff ...

Cederqvist: Remote Repositories (

A wiki ...

Networked Repositories (Client/Server CVS) ( Client.2FServer_CVS.29)

This may be more complicated than you need ...

I have no idea if that even works, just thought Id throw it out.

Subversion looks nice! :0) I've looked at the cederquist docs, but NOWHERE do they mention how to set up a server as far as we could find. But now it looks like we have a good alternative!
