CVS everything!

This post on Slashdot got us thinking of bigger uses for CVS. We're now talking about daily automated commits of the JHA office's CAD files. The CAD operators will be getting a redundant backup method, and version control- without any changes to the way they work. CRON would add new AutoCAD files to the repository and commit changes multiple times a day. We'll be able to track changes (what user changed the file, and when), and will be able to roll back to any version in seconds (we made a mistake, and need to go back to the design from 4 days ago).
