  Description     : OpenBSD CVS implementation with special emphasis in security

OpenCVS is a FREE implementation of the Concurrent Versions System, the
most popular open source revision control software. It can be used as
both client and server for repositories and provides granular access
control over data stored in the repository. It aims to be as compatible
as possible with other CVS implementations, except when particular
features reduce the overall security of the system.

The OpenCVS project was started after discussions regarding the latest
GNU CVS vulnerabilities that came out. Although CVS is widely used, its
development has been mostly stagnant in the last years and many security
issues have popped up, both in the implementation and in the mechanisms.

OpenCVS is primarily developed by Jean-François Brousseau as part of the
OpenBSD Project. The software is freely usable and re-usable by everyone
under a BSD license.
