LEARN ABOUT CVS - THE
UNC's new CVS server provides coordinated access
to ViSta's open source and documentation base. The CVS server
supports and coordinates developers who want to extend, enhance,
fix, or otherwise change ViSta's code, and writers who wish to
document new features, update old documentation, write an Intro
Stats book featuring ViSta, etc. Learn how to gain access to the
server, how to use it, how to contribute fundamental new features
to ViSta, and how to alleviate the documentation problem.
