I hate to say "RTFM".  But take a look at http://www.cyclic.com
and look at the list of supported computers.  They even
have an Amiga version of CVS.  Not many people would be left
out.  For those that don't speak English it comes in  "Deutsch
Franšais Japanese Svenska and Russian".

Programs like "cvsweb" allow anyone with a web browser to  browse CVS
trees via the web (Here is an example:  The entire source code
to the BSD operating system is in a CVS system.  See it here
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi You can get the whole revision
history of BSD using only a set top "webTV" box )
