In defence of cvs. Staroffice is a pretty big project and we do well
with cvs. 150 developers all with check-in permissions. We do also
have some extra tools to draw pretty lists of changes and some
tracking tools to assign numbers of features and bugs and track
changes related to those bugs throughout the system. And some custom
scripts to map the network drives appropriately. Whatever you say
about cvs its well known and reliable.
