This manual page documents briefly the statcvs command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

statcvs is a program that retrieves information from a CVS repository and generates various tables and charts describing the project development, e.g. timeline for the lines of code, contribution of each developer etc.
The current version of StatCvs generates a static suite of HTML documents containing tables and chart images. StatCvs is opens source software, released under the terms oft the LGPL.
StatCvs uses JFreeChart to generate charts.
