Documentation/general process of CVS and Eclipse IDE?

Is there any documentation or general process that has been published regarding how to manage project files, code repository CVS, and Eclipse IDE?


We have a dev sandbox and a training sandbox. The training sandbox is supposed to be closest to the production environment in term of configuration settings. Codes are migrated from dev to training sandbox for final testing. After passing final testing, final codes are migrated from the training sandbox to the production server. From time to time, the training sandbox will be out of synch with the production (changes done directly on the production may not be propagated/re-done in the training sandbox).


In this kind of situation, what is your view/strategy on managing the source code repository using Eclipse IDE?






Check out this article just posted by Nick Simha in our Partner Enablement team:

It's uses Subversion instead of CVS, and it's not specific to the Force.com IDE, but it illustrates the core concepts for using a source code control system in conjunction with the Force.com platform tools.
