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.
