The little I know of CVS is from using it for Tux Paint via SourceForge.

For my purposes, it's really a matter of:

  1. Sit down at system I wanna put a copy of my source onto, for editing
  2. Go through the 'developer check-out' steps (listed on SF.net)
  3. "cvs update"
  4. Tweak my code
  5. "cvs commit"

Then, just do 3 through 5, lather, rinse, repeat, on my other boxen.

I'm pretty much the only contributor to the code, via CVS, though, so I
rarely worry about conflicts (unless I cause them; whoops! forgot to run
'cvs update'!)

My biggest purposes for using it are to be able to easily maintain the
code from various machines, and mainly, so that other developers/testers
can get updates w/o downloading gigantic multi-meg tarballs on their
56k modem connections.

I think LUGOD's Library has at least one or two books on CVS.
