CVS for Non-Developers

I want to have a bunch of non-developers use CVS as a repository. It's the only sane way to do group work. But, I'm not sure the best way to give them access to a CVS repository.

I'm pretty excited because I found TortoiseCVS, which appears to seamlessly integrate CVS into the right click menu of Explorer. I think that will be easier than trying to teach them WinCVS, which is a separate application.

Either way, they'll both be better options than teaching them to use cygwin and a command line client.

Am I missing any other CVS clients or approaches?

  1. Even if the files to be exchanged are images?

    That is, all I need to use it for is for a collection of photoshop files.

    Would you still teach a non-developer eclipse for the CVS access in this case?
