 Introduction to CVS

"First of all, what is CVS?
In short, CVS is a source control system.
And why would I need that?
To source control your project is one of the key points of good software engineering design.
How does it work?
A CVS server is necessary to get started with. All the incremental changes that you make to the source
code are stored in the server (called a CVS repository), so that it would be easy to get back to a previous version at a later point of time."
