A viable alternative to CVS

OpenCVS is a FREE implementation of the Concurrent Versions System, the most popular open source revision control software. It can be used as both client and server for repositories and provides granular access control over data stored in the repository. It aims to be as compatible as possible with other CVS implementations, except when particular features reduce the overall security of the system.

This talk will discuss the reasons for and the development process of OpenCVS and OpenRCS. There will be comparisons against other version control systems and reasons why CVS is preferred.
