Hi Andy,

as far as I understood, you wonder how to convert zillions of different
file formats used
by the people into common file formats that can be viewed on every

Actually, cvs cannot convert into different file formats, but you can
scripts that do it for you in the CVSROOT/loginfo file (see info
cvs/Administrative files):

On every checkin/commit, checkout the files to a separate directory and
run some converters,
depending on the original file format (e.g. doc->pdf). The directory
where these files are kept should
be readable by all users, resp. your specification people.

Pls don't ask me for specific converters, I use only xml->html
conversion, and the html files can then
be browsed in the intranet.

Hope that helps,
