As of this writing (Wed Jan 10 20:57:04 EST 2001) here's how the

Personally, CVS has made my life easier; no
need to sort out patch sets, and after the
working directory is in place, there are not
so vast amount of deltas that a refresh takes
any longer than 10-15 minutes (36K connection).
Plus, you can diff against earlier versions to
better track on-going code catastrophes ;).

Be good, be well
