- 'Cvs-Brancher' establishes a tagged branch in a CVS module and schedules a merge and build to occur at a later date/time. It might be used to roll out Website changes at odd hours, such as posting a press release in time for the start of the business day on the east coast, or to roll out cfengine changes to a data center during the night, to minimize the impact of downtime.
- cvs2cl produces a GNU-style ChangeLog for CVS-controlled sources, by running "cvs log" and parsing the output. Duplicate log messages get unified in the Right Way.
- Perl program to transform the 'cvs log' output to HTML. The HTML output shows the revision log history and differences between versions, and can be configured to show the amount of information the user like to see from the CVS repository. cvs2html can be used for any type of cvs archive. The program can be used on any type of cvs archive, but since it invokes cvs itself, it must be run onn a machine with a local checked out copy of the archive and access to the repsitory.
- CvsKnit lets users knit up a CVS Repository from existing source packages. The new repositoryincludes the original release dates of the source. If you already have non-CVS-managed packages and want to start using revision management with CVS, CvsKnit may be useful.
- 'cvsweb' is a Web interface for accessing a CVS repository. This is an enhanced cvsweb developed by Henner Zeller. Enhancements include recognition and display of popular mime-types, visual, color-coded, side by side diffs of changes and the ability sort the file display and to hide old files from view. One living example of the enhanced cvsweb is the KDE cvsweb. cvsweb requires the server to have CVS and a CVS repository.
- cvsauth is a wrapper for the CVS pserver method. It lets you run multiple repositories on one CVS server without the usual risk when running pserver as root (every CVS user can gain root access). It finally removes the security risks with typical CVS pservers. However, be forewarned that Red Hat 5.0 (and older) and SuSe 5.3 (and older) *do not* work.
- 'cvschk' is a Perl program which transforms the 'cvs status' output to an ASCII table sorted according file status. It gives an overview of which files are new and which have been changed. Note that the program does *only* local checks of files. If you have fast access to the CVS repository, then consider using cvsstat, which can also tell if other people have made newer versions of the files. It's also designed for CVS 1.9; earlier or later versions may require changes to the script.
- 'cvsd' is a configurable chroot/suid wrapper for running a CVS pserver more securely. The hope is that cvsd will allow people to run remotely accessible CVS repositories more securely. The distribution includes a script for setting up the chroot'd environment and user/group. It works by running 'cvs pserver' under a special uid/gid ina chroot jail. The authors notes, however, that for authentication the user should consider using SSh as a secure authentication mechanism and transport, because passwords in 'cvs pserver' are transmitted in plain text and 'cvsd' does not change that.
- 'cvsdelta' works with a CVS project, producing a list of the local files that have been changed. It lists the number of lines of code that have been added, removed, and deleted. It can also execute the "add" and "remove" commands for the appropriate files. It detects files that have been added and removed, and of existing files it counts the number of lines that have been added, deleted, and changed. It filters project changes by using .cvsignore files, both system-wide and locally. Via the --execute option, cvsdelta can also perform the related operations with CVS, that is, it can add and remove the appropriate files. Again, .cvsignore files are honored. Thus, "cvsdelta --execute" will add all new files to the CVS project.
- cvsfs is an attempt to let a user mount a CVS project like any file system. It allows you to navigate and browse through a project tree. No preparations are required on the CVS server It allows to view the versioned files as like they were ordinary files on a disk. There is also a possibility to check in/out some files for editing
