Chapter 17. CVS > Basic Concepts

17.1. Basic Concepts

To accommodate large projects using a hierarchy of several directories, CVS defines the concepts repository and sandbox.

The repository (also called an archive) is the centralized storage area that stores the projects' files. It is managed by the version control system and the repository administrator, and contains information required to reconstruct historical versions of the files in a project. An administrator sets up and controls the repository using the procedures and commands described later in Section 17.5.
