Hi, I am new to cvs. I have to checkout files to have access to
project? But I don't want to change anything, I just want to have a
copy of project for my own, but I won't change it.

Is checkout the only option?

Yes, however the "checkout" action means something different in cvs than in other CM systems you may be familiar with. checkout really just puts the files into your workspace without locking anything. In other words, you will not affect anyone else by doing a checkout.

You can think of checkout as a "get" or "fetch" operation.
