CVS support locally works in the CVS version ;-) completely. For remote
CVS you have to import your project first after generation as usual with
the CVS commands. Info on local use of CVS with KDevelop is updated in
the manual (in CVS version)
For a full tool, look for Cervesia (included in the KDK and available
standalone) which you can add as a tool to KDevelop.
