My recollection is that SourceGear purchased Cyclic from Jim in July
1999... Let me see, yes it appears to have made it into slashdot.org
see http://slashdot.org/articles/99/07/21/1826201.shtml for more info.

Sure, just read the ChangeLog files. :-)

A VERY brief history:
  Brian wrote the first version of cvs and released cvs 1.2 and then
  rewrote it in C and released cvs 1.3.

  Patches were collected and sources tarballs distributed from
  ftp://ftp.think.com/pub/cvs for a long time.

  the Cygnus folks were using cvs and did some work on it circa revision 1.4

  Paul Kunz produced rCVS (remote CVS) for public testing

  client/server work occured circa revision 1.5

  Jim took over maintaining cvs and made it available via cyclic.com

  OpenBSD, NetBSD and FreeBSD selected cvs as their revision control
  system of choice. (Some divergence exists between these versions and
  the cvshome.org version of cvs today.)

  Derek Price moved cvs sources to cvshome.org
> And how many different strains are there of CVS?


The *BSD folks have minor feature additions on their versions of CVS

The Windows folks have their own cvs stuff as well

There are also clients other than the cvshome.org cvs client.
Examples of those are Meta-CVS by Kaz Kylheku and TortoiseCVS
not to mention ViewCVS and CVSWeb for browsing code.
