BTW, whatever happened to Cyclic, did they go bankrupt,

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.

Cyclic, or at least the domain name was then purchased by OpenAvenue from SourceGear, and then OpenAvenue turned it into cvshome.org and sold it again to CollabNet, who now owns the domain. cyclic.com still points at cvshome.org in the DNS.

Is the history of CVS available anywhere (short form)?

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 did a lot of the client/server work while he was at Cygnus, as I understand it.

 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


Though you do neglect to mention a lot of other maintainers and developers who deserve credit. I think I will leave it to the ChangeLogs rather than trying to list all of them, though.
