Yes, and it does scale. You can have as many respositories as you need.
Or even remote ones in different locations that mirror repositories at
your present location.  We switched from VSS to CVS for a few reasons.
1. its free. 2. it handles branching better. 3. unlike vss, cvs does not
make copies of the files every time you change it, so it takes up a lot
less disk space. I cannot even think of a company that would be to big
for CVS.

Good luck convincing them of this change.

BTW, we use CVSNT here, as we don't have any Unix systems in house or in

Hi All,
I am trying to convince upper level management that
CVS is a good
choice as a version control system. Their main contra
argument is that
it does not scale.
So, can you please give me some real world experiences
on which big
projects you used it. (Number of people, lines of
code, distributed,
Also, names of well known companies CVS would help. (I
think NASA is one, but I am not sure)

With these numbers at hand I hope that I can convince

Please reply ;)
