A few notes:

* if you have a question about TortoiseCVS ask the TortoiseCVS mailing
list not the CVS one

* no GUI is a substitute for education - CVS is a powerful and complex
piece of software.  If you are going to rely on CVS for tracking changes
you should buy a good book on the subject and read it thoroughly (eg:
'All About CVS' which I had a hand in writing, or 'Essential CVS' or one
of many others).

* Both TortoiseCVS and WinCVS come with extensive documentation (but I
agree the WinCVS doccs are lacking volunteers to keep it up to date):

* A major feature of free/open source software is that other people
contribute, eg:
