Acronym for Concurrent Versioncontrol System. Not to be confused with CSV (comma separated values).

A way of allowing multiple people work on one set of files at the same time and have changes merged in and history and versions kept (much like this wiki).

It can be used in configuration files (extensions.conf) just to be sure to always keep a working copy of that precious file.

CVS started off as a couple of shell script wrappers around RCS and diff, and it's evolved into something much much more.

It's starting to show its age now however as it's starting to have a few design limitations.

cvs is invoked by using the cvs command.
