The CVSAPI provides a bunch of methods that are useful for CVS GUI clients, 
including spawning CVS processes, finding CVS Servers (browse and define 
servers) etc.

There is not (yet) an API for the CVS/Entries - but that will be done as a 
part of the EVS project (I think) - check out the evs-dev newsgroup for more 
info on that.

The documentation is what is in the source code... If you checkout the cvsnt 
project and look in the WorkspaceViewer folder - that is a sample app that 
uses most of the main features of CVSAPI...
