    CVS: a system to keep track of development in a software project. In an open-source project, it's usually available to the world so you can take a peek at day-to-day development and contribute your changes or test the latest features. The CVS snapshot is not supposed to work, fulfill your needs or be better that any released version. May, or may not. It's work in progress.

    Released tar file (i.e. slashcode-2.2.5.tar.gz): a point in development when the software is supposedly working fine, and it's released to the general public.

    Bundle::Slash: a Perl file that helps to download all the needed Perl modules from the CPAN [cpan.org] (Comprehensive Perl Archive Network).
