What does PVCS mean?

PVCS Version Manager is a software package by Serena Software Inc. for revision control of files, in particular source code files. PVCS follows the "locking" approach to concurrency control; it has no merge operator built-in. However PVCS can also be configured to support several users simultaneously attempting to edit the file; in this case the second committer will have a branch created for him/her so that both modifications, instead of conflicting, will appear as parallel histories for the same file. This is unlike CVS and Subversion where the second committer needs to first merge the changes via the update command and then resolve conflicts before actually committing. Originally developed by Don Kinzer and published by Polytron in 1985, through a history of acquisitions and mergers, the product was at times owned by Sage Software of Rockville, Maryland, Intersolv, and Merant Software. The latter was acquired by Serena Software in 2004, which was itself acquired by Silver Lake Partners in 2006.
