I've not tested it with CVS, only with SVN which would be another

It doesn't work well. With SVN, the average tree size would be close to
120MB which isn't very good. 

In addition to that, diffs doesn't work well due to all the mark-ups
that is present within the scribus src itself. (it's not plain text
files or html like tags)

I've researched the problem and it's unlikely that the scribus team has
any way to solve it for the current 1.2 version. (even 1.3 would be hard
