The Internet says the answer is GIT, so for the past few days I have been trying to learn something about GIT( but still Iam a CVS user).

Git is a free distributed revision control, or software source code management project with an emphasis on being fast. Git was initially designed and developed by Linus Torvalds for Linux kernel development.

Why the name GIT ?
Linus Torvalds has quipped about the name "git", which is British English slang for a stupid or unpleasant person. "I'm an egotistical bastard, and I name all my projects after myself. First Linux, now git." This self-deprecating humor is tongue-in-cheek, as Torvalds was actually pressured into naming Linux after himself .

I guess its enough of wikipedia's history let me share my little knowledge on GIT to you people. Before installing the server as your own, try this GITHUB social coding site . First create a free repository here, then install the GIT client in your end (I installed this in solaris, not a big deal just gzip -d , untar and make install ) . Just for the try I commited few files and checked it. Its really coooolllll.

Now my next step is to install the GIT server in my local box . I am not sure whether it will be easy or not ? After then its migration from CVS to GIT if possible. Let see how this project goes for me................
