At work we use cvs and subversion for version control, light years better than Visual SourceSafe.
I’m trying to extend my active command line knowledge of cvs and svn… Remember I’m a low and humble marketer / content developer / writer.

Regular commands I use:

cvs update
cvs commit -m "message" filename

cvs tag -F "tagname" filename
cvs update -dPr tagname to checkout a tagged version
cvs update -dPA to return to head

I’m using cvs (command) --help to list the various options available.

I’m a visual person, and can remember best when I write things down and see them. How do you keep on top of cvs and svn commands? Can you recommend a cheat sheet?
