Lists: pgsql-hackers
I've now finished up initial content generation on the wiki page that 
covers using the CVS repository:

http://developer.postgresql.org/index.php/Working_with_CVS

That includes all the helpful comments suggested on this list in last 
month's threads on this topic along with a full dump of what was in my 
brain.  The most complete section expands Heikki's workflow into a fleshed 
out example I think is good enough for new potential developers to use.

I've also put some notes on the Discussion page of this article that lead 
to links on recent general trends in this area.  Anyone who isn't familiar 
with distributed version control systems like Git or Mercurial should find 
those references one way to get up to speed on what's going on there. 
With high-profile projects like Apache recently committing to DVCS work 
these tools are really becoming mainstream.

Some of that reading is both informative and periodically hilarious; my 
favorite quote is from Linus Torvalds, who says "if you actually like 
using CVS, you shouldn't be here. You should be in some mental 
institution".
