Jigsaw implements WebDAV and a tool called JigEdit that use Cvs in the
back end to do versionning. In the cvs base (but not released yet, it will
be in 2.2.1), there is a version that has WebDAV+JigEdit capabilities.

A small description of Jigedit is available from:


I will provide different sets of configuration for the next releases.

CvsFrame are used on an empty frame. They make some cvs commands available
through forms, for files under cvs control, you have CvsFileFrame.
