Do you forsee any issues with trying to do such a thing, or do you have any tips as to how to get a setup like that working?/ Unison and CVS can be used together. The easiest way is to replicate your files with Unison but keep your CVS repository on just one machine (and do a commit on that machine after each time you synchronize with Unison, if files in that directory have changed). More complex schemes are also possible (e.g., using a remote CVS server and checking in from any host with one of the replicas), but should be used with care. In particular, if you use a remote CVS server, it is important that you do /not/ tell Unison to ignore the files in the CVS subdirectory." http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~bcpierce/unison/ <http://www.cis.upenn.edu/%7Ebcpierce/unison/>
