CVS for regional manifestations of a site

Hi list,

after taking the first plunge into the world of CVS, I would like to
ask you - the experienced users - for advice. I searched quite some
time on the Internet to find some information about the basics of CVS
and read lots of documents. So, the principle(s) I do understand. But
I didn't really find the answer to my - perhaps a bit specific -
problem, although I had the impression that subversion was hinting in
its document into this direction.

But here is my situation:

We have developed a site with something like 80 (mostly php) files, a
mysql database and some other stuff covering global information. Now,
this site has so much success in our organisation that regional
manifestations of the "portal" are planned for different regions of
the world. These do use the "global" code. But some adoptions have to
be made within the code to reflect the regional scale of the site.

Here is my question: Beside the fact that these regional developers
could contribute to ameliorate the code (via a CVS), more
importantly: can the issue of the insertion & replacement of certain
pieces of code be solved by using a CVS when the regions update
theirs sites with the latest "global" version?

I hope I could make the point clear enough...

I would be grateful for any advice.

Thanks a lot.
