CVS for our organization??

CVS for our organization??

CVS for our organization??

To Whom It May Concern,
We maintain an XP Image for the workstations in our environment (as most organizations do).  We would like to be able to track all changes and modifications to this image, as well as track the version numbers, etc.  We will also begin setting up software packages (.msi) to be released to the PCs in our environment, and would like the ability to track the changes/modifications to those as well.  
Is CVS our answer??
Any information is much appreciated.  Thank you for your time.
Sean Clifton

RE: CVS for our organization??

I don't think cvs is much use for binary files.  Still cvs supports binary files to be checked-in, checked-out, tagged with version informtion etc.  But is major advantage of diff & branching are not of any use for the binary files.

For that matter any source code control system is not good enough for binary storage and not recommended.  But if you are desparate and really want to use cvs there is no harm in using it and you can only maintain different versions of your binary files using the tagging feature.
