       This manual page documents briefly the cdvserver command.  This  manual
       page  was  written  for  the  Debian  distribution because the original
       program does not have a manual page.

       cdvserver is a server for the codeville distributed revision system.  A
       server  keeps track of revisions and holds a database used for revision
       control.   The codeville system needs both a server and a client.   cdv
       is the only known codeville client.
