A year and a half? Wow! While the goal of CVS is very appealing, the
methodology takes time to get one's head around it. Especially for me trying
to juggle 2 dozen very different things. I've taken this on as a very long
I've also been looking at Subversion http://svnbook.red-bean.com/,
Your use of CVS to branch sounds possibly similar to how I do my
experimentations on successive copies, I always make a new copy as each
element is stabilized, so I can easily return to the last stable version
should the next step fall apart on me.

Hhm, I've only found that file, I have not written it. =:)
For me, it tooks about 1 1/2 year, to really embedd the CVS-thing into
my workflow. But I never want miss it. Mostly I use the possibility to
branch and merge. Really mostly branch ;-). If it ends up in a mess, I
leave the branch and go on with another branch or the HEAD. It makes
coding-life much more relaxed.
I've installed the CVSNT-Server on one machine and it is highly
recommendet to work with the server. Of course, you must create a
Repository on one machine, e.g. with or without a CVS-Server. But
without, there can happen strange things related to different times on
the machines which access the Repository. So, it takes only 10 minutes
to pick the CVSNT-Server and install it. It's Freeware. It installs as
a Service, what allows to access it, without the need that someone is
logged into that machine, (only the machine must running ;-) )
The link to CVSNT is within the clip.
Also, if you start with the CVS, TCVS, you should join their List.
There are very helpful people which always have answered my questions,
even if they was very, very basic.
