23.7.7 Remote Repositories

A common way of using CVS is to set up a central CVS repository on some Internet host, then have each developer check out a personal working copy of the files on his local machine. Committing changes to the repository, and picking up changes from other users into one's own working area, then works by direct interactions with the CVS server.

One difficulty is that access to the CVS server is often slow, and that developers might need to work off-line as well. VC is designed to reduce the amount of network interaction necessary.
