"[Consumers] will find the fine 'pocket references' produced by O'Reilly to be compact and affordable."
-- James Cox, The Computer Shelf: Midwest Book Review

Reviews From Previous Edition

"Indispensable handbook for administrators of all but small CVS installations, and probably for the small ones as well."
--Craig Pfeifer, slashdot.com, March 27, 2001

"The creator has managed to pack a surprising amount into that tiny space. The book starts out with a brief but comprehensive introduction to what CVS and version controls are, and why you might need them...on the admin side there is a pleasing amount of information and suggestions on topics such as security and common directory structures...if you want a pocket sized guide to look up all those strings of commands--even the obscure ones---this is ideal."
--Linux Format, Jan 2001

"An excellent guide for the Concurrent Version System.... this clearly written and neatly organized reference places the power of CVS conveniently within every programmers reach."
--Elizabeth Zinkann, Sys Admin, Nov 2000
