The only locks in CVS are under the hood.  Users don't
see any locks and are able to modify copies of the
files at their whim.

The first person to checkin is able to do so.  The
others will have to perform a merge by doing a "cvs
up" and resolving any conflicts.

Deleted files are not removed from the repo.  They are
moved into a special place called the Attic.

I don't know.

CVS itself is a client/server application.

It doesn't care what you put into the repository so it
can store distributed applications if that's what
you're asking.

> -J2EE Support

I haven't seen any and will probably not see any since
CVS presumes login accounts on the repo server (unless
you're using the hackish pserver mode).

If you're asking about a CVS library, I think it's
been talked about, but no work has been done on it.

I don't know.

CVS relies on OS security.  Depending on what you
need, you may be able to get it from the OS.
