We have started to use Workbench for our software development. Workbench
includes CVS support out-of-the-box. Subversion support requires you to
use a plugin - we use Subclipse, which works really well.
(Remember that Workbench is basically Eclipse with a Wolfram wrapper
around it - all the Eclipse plugins should work in Workbench).

I can send round some documentation if anyone wants it.
