TkCVS is a cross-platform, Tcl/Tk-based GUI for the CVS and Subversion configuration management systems. It displays the status of the files in the current working directory, and provides buttons and menus to execute CVS, Subversion, or RCS commands on the selected files. The Log Browser displays a branch diagram of the revision history. The Module Browser extends CVS with facilities for a user-friendly listing of modules in the repository. TkDiff is included for browsing and merging your changes.
The FILTR (File Inventory for Loading, Transfer, and Recovery) automates CVS functions for personal use, allowing a user to maintain a watch on any directory, mirroring it in an intermediate working directory and taking care of all import, add, delete, and update calls to the CVS repository. No changes or additions are made to the directory under watch. The user can revert a watched directory to any previous saved state with a button click, or call up one or several past versions of a file. Groups can also make use of the same repository for file sharing.
Anthill is a tool that ensures a controlled build process and promotes the sharing of knowledge within an organization. Anthill performs a checkout from the source repository of the latest version of a project before every build and tags the repository with a unique build number after every build. It supports many reposistory adapters including: CVS (Concurrent Versions System), Visual Source Safe, Perforce, PVCS, StarTeam, MKSIntegrity, and FileSystem. Anthill also automatically updates a project intranet site with artifacts from the latest build. Anthill is an extension to the Apache-Ant project and is compatible with version 1.3, 1.4, and 1.5 of Ant.
The Helix Ribosome build system is a set of programs written in the Python programming language which provide a common interface to retrieving and building programs from source code stored in a CVS repository. The build system is made up of two basic subsystems. The first ("build") calculates the dependencies of a target, retrieves the source code, and runs commands to build that source code in the correct order. The second component ("Umake") is a cross-platform Makefile generator, which generates makefiles that work with MSVC, CodeWarrior, and typical Unix toolchains. Umake can be used independently from the build program.
The Distributed Concurrent Versioning System (DCVS) extends the well-known version control system CVS and the file distribution and synchronization program CVSup with functionality to distribute CVS repositories with local lines of development and handle synchronization of the distributed repositories automatically in the background. Development lines (branches) are owned by a repository server, repository servers efficiently update each other via CVSup, and CVS ensures correct server use on checkin and branch creation.
