Subject Re: [OT]CVS client

Another nice option is SmartCVS ( It is a pure Java
GUI app that is available as a free version or a reasonably priced
commercial version (with more features). One especially nice thing about
SmartCVS is that it is easy to setup for CVS over SSH access. I don't mind
setting up keys for "traditional" CVS over SSH access, but SmartCVS is very
easy to setup for folks who don't want to mess with SSH key setup (I think
it just remembers the password you type in, rather than using keys).

However, I generally use WinCVS, and put the directory with cvs.exe in my
path so that I can use it from the command line, too. I have Cygwin
installed (without installing the cvs package, since WinCVS's cvs in is my
path) and use its ssh client for CVS over SSH (may require some additional
setup so it finds your SSH keys). I also use IntelliJ IDEA's CVS features.
Each client (WinCVS GUI, cvs command line, IDEA) is useful in certain
situations. Specifically, WinCVS's "flatten" and "show committable files
only" feature is nice for committing a bunch of files that I changed in
different directories. The command line is nice for updates and tagging when
you are already at the command line to run Ant builds, etc. IDEA's client is
nice when I am using the IDE.
