cvs-get aims at providing users with an easy way of grabbing current cvs snapshots for a variety of programs whose locations are included in a sources file.
- The ability to grab a cvs module to a pre-specified source directory via a simple command like cvs-get grab module(s)
- The ability to list currently available modules in the sources file via cvs-get list
- The ability to update the cvs.sources file via cvs-get update
- The ability to automatically build deb files from Debian enabled cvs source trees with cvs-get debuild module
- An unsupported LFS Package Manager infrastructure, see the README for more details.
