        My name is Limor Yaakov and I am the QA Manager of Smart Link company.
        We are using CVS as a configuration management tools. 

        The configuration is as follow:

        1. Server - CVS server version 1.11.1p1 is installed on Linux server
        2. Client - WinCVS version 1.2 (as the adminstrator of this tool I use 
the latest 1.3 beta version).

        As I am quite new to CVS, I have some questions regarding upgrading the 
server to the latest cvs version.
        As I wrote above, we are using quite an old cvs version 1.11.1p1 while 
the latest one is version 1.1.18.

        [1] Is there any implication or warnings that I should be aware of when 
upgrading from version 1.11.1p1 to
             1.1.18 or is it a smooth upgrading without any side effects ?

        [2] Should I take precaution before upgrading like creating a backup of 
the repository ?
        [3] Are there any operations that being done on the repository during 
the upgrade ?

        [4] What is the preferable version. Is it the STABLE version or the 
FEATURE version ?

        [5] Are you familiar with any Bug Tracking application that can be 
easliy integrated with CVS and is also feature-rich ?

        I would really appreciate your help on this issue.

Best Regards,


CVS Server is installed on
        Linux Server and as a client we are using WinCVS
