CVS what/why/how?


Security is a big deal for me, and I want to keep my box updated without as much time/work/ and effort as possible. When reading around CVS seems to come up alot. I've read the howto's the faq's and still really don't understand to much. It always sounds like it is for developers, and not really for the common user for updating binaries. Basically I thought it is used for easy automated version updating, am I on the right track. And if so where can I do some easy reading meant for maintaing my box with current updates, using cvs?

Yea I checked out cvshome.org, it only talked about its uses for software development purposes, I don't know if that was the answer to my question or not. Is it also used for the common user to keep packages and what not up to date, say with security fixes for example, Or purely developmental purposes?
