Sure. I need to update my knowledge to Java 1.2 though, as bitmaps
graphics in pre-1.2 really sucks.

I usually see it the other way around. CVS is not all that important to
small projects, but it is for bigger ones. If you use branches, modules
and add some management, things should work out ok.

There are several examples of very big projects using CVS, some with over
a hundred developers. I can't see why it can't work for us.

Even if only one person was to have write-access, I would still want CVS.
Being able to "cvs up" and "cvs diff" really saves a lot of time.
