All the documentation stuff just confuses me. How do I use WinCvs for a SourceForge project? It would be great if anybody could give a SHORT general explanation. What do I need to know?

I don''t think a short explanation is possible. CVS is a fairly complicated tool. Heck, just describing the basic terminology needed to use CVS would probably take a few paragraphs. Are you going to use CVS as a developer or just to get source dumps from sourceforge?

I''d use it as developer.
Yeah I meant just an overview. How it is done usually.
I''m trying to find a starting point.

How would I do it ... have a Repository on my hd and set up cvs in dev-c++?
Then upload files to the SourceForge CVS Repository?
Wrong? Correct? Stuff like that ...

Get the CVS server details, get putty and get putty to login without password, once that''s done you can use winCVS.

Thanks.
Tortoise helped me ... at least it is up and running.
With Pageant pointing to the private key and ssh and a new module at sourceforge and, and and ...

I know I'll need to learn how to use it properly.
But I'm not completely lost any more.
