If you work on a particular version-controlled site regularly, you
will have a working copy of all the files you need checked
out and available on your desktop computer. You may edit the files in
your working copy at will, without additional setup or
hassle. It is always wise to begin an editing session by making sure
your working copy of the site is up-to-date and in tune with the
latest copy available from the CVS site repository (especially if
you haven't touched anything for a day or two--others may have
committed changes to the site in your absence).
