You can look at , in particular
Chapter 4 which has this link: .
This second link in turn has references at the end.

I worked on a web site for a while;  I was one of a half-dozen
developers.  We each had our own copy of the site and our own
instance of the web server but we shared the same development
database.  I don't remember how the graphics designers worked, but
I think they ended up moving to CVS as well.  So a little more
elaborate than what Greenspun describes.

Basically CVS (or any other rev control system) works great with
the html, scripts and SQL queries.  It doesn't do much good with
database schemas;  changes to those end up being managed outside
of CVS.
