Note that GnuCash doesn't work on Windows, and it would be a LOT of
work to get it to work on Windows.  What are your intentions?

See the above URL.  CVS is a source code control system, it is not a
devel tool kit.  If you don't know Linux/Unix systems then it'll probably
be VERY confusing to you.

Get an IRC client, attach to the IRC network, join the
#gnucash channel.  Once there, say hi and either ask your questions or
hang out, but don't expect lots of chatter.

This is probably the best place.
