Hi, This might seem a silly question to some, but I just want to get a clearer understanding of how CVS all hangs together. What I want to know is how much of the work is done in the CVS server, and how much is done in the CVS client? I know that the front-ends (eg WinCVS) are little more than a GUI, but I wasn't sure if the CVS client that they use does any of the work (merging etc) or if pretty much everything is handled server side. Can anyone enlighten me please? If the client does do more than interface with the server, does this mean I need to upgrade the clients on all the users machines when I upgrade the server?
