I've been sitting on this CVS content mamangement stuff for far too long now, and it's nowhere near done. My problem is that I'm still waivering on exactly what I want to do. What exactly am I creating here? Click for more...

My main problem right now is that I keep losing sight of the fact that all I really need to be doing is implementing enough of a CVS backend to checkout files and check them back in, along with a modicum of conflict handling. I keep starting to think about implementing all of the cvs client into my module, but I really don't need that. I don't need branch tags, directory functionality, or anything complicated like that. All I want on the checkout front is the ability to check out any version I want of a file, see diffs between versions, and see changelogs for each revision. On the other end I want a checkin routine that will check a file in, or return false if there's a conflict.

I really need to finish this backend up so I can start working on the frontend. I really don't see that whole bit taking too long, though. Especially compared to this part.
