CVS == Concurrent Version System.  It's a source code management system 
designed to deal with heirarchical trees, rather than the flat 
directories that RCS (Revision Control System) or SCCS (Source Code 
Control System) use.  Actually, CVS is implemented as a layer built atop 
RCS.

CVS is a GNU package, available from prep.ai.mit.edu; it requires RCS, 
also available at prep...
