More important than CVS is understanding why and how CM is used. Educate
your people so that everybody uses it the same way.

I experience with command line tools, Visual SourceShredder and now a little
with CVSNT, with both clients and server running w2k. CVSNT is my choice.

CVSNT setup and configuration does not work like Windows programs should.
Instead, you have to carefully read scattered readme.txt's and try until you
succeed. It took me two days and half dozen desperate emails to this group.
Once you get past this pass, you're fine.

I never read VSS manual, just installed and used it. That's one of the few
good comments I say about that product.

CVSNT GUI shells are OK. I installed both CvsGUI and TortoiseCVS, but now I
noticed I only use Tortoise. I's useful, although sometimes I don't
understand its behaviour. Igloo didn't work with first try and I gave it up.

You still need command line occasionally, so print the quick  reference for
everybody. And print one copy of the CVS reference manual.

One person in your team should become a CVS(NT) expert, with the
responsibility to answer every CVS related question. That way, clueless
beginners don't have to waste time in search for simple answers.

CVSNT is a good tool and I'd recommend it. I'd give my vote to go with the
latest beta, no matter what Tony says about it's dangers. Back up your
repository frequently, automate daily builds.

We were wondering if you have any experience with running cvs on a windows

We just installed cvs onto our system. It seems that all the online
documentation focuses on Unix. Can you please recommend information that
would help us configure and apply cvs.

We'd appreciate a response.

Thank You.
