My understanding is that Redhat 7.2 GNU/Linux provides an update to
cvs-1.11.1p1-8.7.i386.rpm for the security fix that caused cvs-1.11.5 to
be released. However, if you really want the new version of cvs in an
RPM, you should consider building it yourself (it is easy to do).

You should be able to fetch a copy of the cvs-1.11.5.tar.bz2 file from
the download pages and make your own RPM package using the
following steps:

        bunzip2 cvs-1.11.5.tar.bz2 | tar xvf -
        cd cvs-1.11.5

     You may need to be root for the next few steps or
     you need to change the ownership of the /usr/src/redhat
     tree to your own userid.

        cp ../cvs-1.11.5.tar.bz2 /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
        rpm -ba cvs.spec
        chown -R bkowald /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/cvs-1.11.5/src

     Now you need to be a normal user

        cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/cvs-1.11.5/src
        make localcheck remotecheck

     If everything works, you may now use:

        rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/cvs-1.11.5-1.i386.rpm
and (optionally)
        rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/cvs-krb5-1.11.5-1.i386.rpm

     to install the packages you built.
