Multiple environment mgt with CvS...

Hello all -
I'm really new to the CvS world, so please bear with me on this question:
We are using CvS on Unix with WinCvS user interface.  We have around 12 developers and are working with multiple environments.  Each of these environments will be used by a different testing group, so we may need to support different versions of the same code in all of these environments.
Once we start deploying code to these environments and the users start reporting issues in them, we'll need a strategy for fixing bugs in the appropriate environment, and re-deploying the code there for re-testing. 
Chances are, however, that we will need to merge some of the fixes from these individual environments into the 'Base' code in the other environments so as to eliminate the same bugs accross multiple environments.  This, however, seems like a very complicated task because we want to be selective about what to merge in order not to introduce features from the on-going development in other areas...   So the broad question is this:
What is the best practice for getting our hands around all these environments and for developing a solid processes so we don't step on each other's toes?!
