Keeping Track of Who is Doing What

CVS allows several people to alter the same site, even the same file, at once.10 You should update your working copy of a project regularly so that you'll never miss a major change. In addition to requesting regular CVS updates, you may want to receive a ``heads-up'' via email when someone else changes the site, and then go in and browse those changes online (instead of downloading a fresh working copy and trying to guess what changed by reading the source of each file). Section 7 describes the automatic email log messages and cvsweb tool that we've started using at ICG to help keep track of who is working on a project and what they're up to.
