CVS is functional
Already, the CVS is functional! :)

The documentation part of the project is on the server. You can get the project by checking out the module cbweb (cvs checkout cbweb).

NEW!! There is a good gui for the CVS, and Marijan found it! It's Tortoise CVS. It can be found on http://www.tortoisecvs.org/

To learn more, read on about it in the continued part of this news...:)
The documentation documents are all binary, so remember to use appropriate commands:
To start editing a file: cvs edit
To cancel editing (looses all changes): cvs unedit
To add a new binary file (please be very reserved with that now that we have CVS.. it should not be needed very often..): cvs add -kb
To commit a changed file: cvs commit

Note: those commands are followed by a filename.

People who don't have experience with CVS, feel free to contact me with questions... after trying with the documentation:
And after reading the instructions below..

The CVS server IP address is:
Access method: extssh.
CVSROOT Path: /var/lib/cvs/cbwweb/

Now, to set this up in a way, that is sure to work, you can follow these few steps:

- Install cygwin (http://www.cygwin.com/). In the setup be sure to select openssh from the "net" package group.
- When the install completes, run cygwin so your config files get written.

- Install CVSNT(http://www.cvsnt.org/). From the right-most column (free version), choose the windows client. Scroll down to the bottom of the collumn and click accept terms.
- After download, install it. You don't have to install the server.

-Now add the following to the bottom of your c:\autoexec.bat file to shorten the cvs commands:

SET CVSROOT=:ext:{user}@

That's it. But be sure to replace some parts of the commands that are wrong for you.
(replace the {user} with your username - for exp, mine is sprstacic)
(replace the c:\cygwin\bin with the path to where you actually installed the cygwin)

-restart the computer or run c:\autoexec.bat

- You can now checkout the project. In the command line, go to folder where you want cvs to put the project, and run the command: cvs checkout cbweb

If you want to use some GUI to operate CVS, Tortoise CVS is a good one. It integrates nicely into windows, and is very intuitive.. You can find it here: http://www.tortoisecvs.org/.
