history file

Stores an ever-accumulating history of activity in the repository, for use by the cvs history command. To disable this feature, simply remove the history file. If you don't remove the file, you should probably make it world-writeable to avoid permission problems later.

The contents of this file do not modify CVS's behavior in any way (except for the output of cvs history, of course).
