Version Control with CVS

CVS is an open source, version control system, used to manage files and directories.

In order to use CVS version control with Enterprise Architect, you must install version control software on your local machine. Also, you must create a working directory (using your version control software) before you can configure Enterprise Architect. You can have as many working directories as you like on your local machine.

You must also connect to a repository, which can be either a remote repository or local to your machine. If your repository is local, it must be created with your version control software.

Each working folder you create contains information on connection to a repository. This connection information includes the path to the local or remote repository, the user name and password in order to make a connection.
