© June 2004 Tony Lawrence

Concurrent Versions Systems. The general standard for version control. Allows multiple people to work on a project by tracking changes and controlling access. Primarily used for code, but there's no reason it can't be used for any project where multiple people make changes to a document set. See https://www.whoishostingthis.com/compare/cvs/resources/

Sometimes people even use it for their home directories.
see here:

It allowed this guy to synchronize the home file and user configurations of the dozen or so different enviroments he has to operate in. It also allows for document revisioning to have undo abilities when editing files over the long term (like if your a writer), makes making backups easy, and adds undelete capbabilities to the operating enviroment.

The down side though, of course, is that it's not easy to set up if your not familar with CVS. Also some people say that other versioning software like Subversion is superior to these sort of tasks then CVS.

Never used it myself, though.
