Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

How exactly does the CVS Checkout work? Does it just have one continuous
stream when it checks out or does it grab a few, then open another
stream to the server and grab more until all of the files are pulled


Also, How does the CVS update work? For example how does it know which
files have changed and how does it know that I don't have the latest
updates? Does it do a cross reference first and then pull down what is
