There are a few products on for integrating with CVS.  Look 
through the downloadable products.  I think there are CVSFolder and 
ZCVSFile (or something like that), maybe more.

However, most version control tools are difficult to integrate into 
applications in a platform-neutral way.  To integrate with CVS, for 
example, Zope spawns a CVS client, but the CVS client runs with the 
privileges of the Zope process rather than the user's privileges.  It 
works but it's not very clean.

Subversion, however, gives us a new opportunity.  The first alpha has 
been released.  Communicating with a Subversion repository involves 
HTTP, WebDAV, and DeltaV--all documented, open standards.  So Zope could 
talk to a Subversion repository in a very transparent, well-integrated 
way.  Anyone out there looking to write a nice, useful product for Zope? 
  A Zope->Subversion adapter would be a great choice. :-)
