Meta-CVS is a version control system created around CVS. It keeps most of CVS's features, but adds support for first class directory structure versioning, storage of symbolic links, and versioning of execute permissions and user-defined properties. Meta-CVS greatly simplifies branching and merging by keeping track of what is merged where. It records file types and automatically assigns a CVS keyword expansion mode to newly added files whose suffixes match previously recorded types. The package also has an importing feature that automatically figures out renames and moves, so it is easy to keep up with patches from multiple sources despite directory structure changes.
