Another tool that you might consider is Perforce. Perforce, like cvs, is
TCP/IP based, so is good if the team is in different locations, including
people working at home with Virtual Private Network.
Also Perforce has a nice client spec concept, which allows users to create
different mappings of repository files onto their local filesystems. This is
in fact so good that you can deploy J2EE applications with Perforce,
provided that you check in all the config files and all the jar files which
constitute the application, and that you create client specs matching the
file system layout of the distribution.
