CVS is the bleeding-edge version of the book. As soon as I or any of the
other editors make a change to the book, it's put in CVS (Concurrent
Version(ing) System). It's a central place to store the book in and
everybody in the world can download the latest-greatest version (which
may not result in a proper built LFS system. It's not always bug-free,
usable etc).
