Indeed! The C in cvs stands for "concurrent". It keeps track of all
modification made in a file. It even can show what
modifications where made by whom in a give time, for example, this is
the output of the command "annotate":

Annotations for

I think cvs is the way to go. There is plenty of documentation and
tutorials on cvs for free in the web.

humm, actually cvs doesn't work its best with binary formats (like wav
and midi files), but as far as ly files are concerned (i.e. text
files), cvs is the best.
