A few command I know:
cvs add <name of the file> -> adds a file to the CVS
cvs remove <name of the file> -> removes a file from the CVS (the file
needs to have been deleted from the local computer first)
cvs commit -> validate all the changes
Anyway, a simple "man cvs" will teach you a lot.
There are also useful instructions on
Click on the "CVS" link in the top bar.
And if that's not enough, you can go here:
That said, to avoid getting mess in CVS, maybe someone with experience
using CVS could manage all the commits. Other developers would simply
send patches on the mailing list. Anyone up for that ? Or do we all try
to manage it ourselves ?
There is also an excellent tutorial at http://fedora.redhat.com/participate/developers-guide/ch-cvs.html
And they point to another even better and very comprehensive one at http://www.cvshome.org/
