You might as well look at http://cvsbook.red-bean.com/ where you can 
download a PDF version of the book "Open Source Development with CVS" (and 
a HTML version of an older edition of it).

In my opinion, it is more suited to give an overview how CVS works (and why 
it works like that) than the info manual. On the other hand, the info 
manual is usually better as a reference if you know exactly what you want 
to archieve.
