I think those who have never used it would get a lot out of reading the 
article in Linux Format Magazine LXF47 (Dec. 2003) on page 60.

As a newbie to CVS it was very easy to follow and made life easier. It does a 
great job on explaining CVS! Then the following will make sense.
export CVSROOT=:pserver:anoncvs at ahnews.music.salford.ac.uk:/usr/local/cvsroot
cvs login
password = "enter" key
cvs -z3 co Scribus

After you accomplish the download though you must make sure that you follow 
way to  the build of the 'configure' file with

make -f Makefile.dist
If you have the correct versions of automake and autoconf then you won't get 
error messages. If you have error messages then get the latest libraries of 
automake and autoconf. You may also have to reset some environmental 
variables like

export WANT_AUTOCONF_2_5=1

and then

./configure --prefix= (directory you want to Scribus in) eg. /home/tom/mycvs/
make install
make clean
