Changing CVS team settings

You can customize the settings related to a number of CVS team views and operations.

  1. Open the Team preference page. You will see a number of general Team options. These options can be used by any Eclipse integrated repository. In our case, they are all applicable to CVS.
  2. You will also see a Team > CVS preference page containing various CVS options.
  3. Underneath the Team > CVS preference page are several sub-pages. For example, there are pages for Watch/Edit, Console, Label Decorations and SSH2 among others.

In the Preferences dialog, you can search by keywords such as CVS or SSH2 in order to show only the relevant pages.

Changing CVS Project Settings

You can change CVS project settings in the properties dialog of a project.

  • From the context menu of a view showing the project, select Properties
  • Click on the CVS category

From this dialog, you can:

  • Enable Watch/Edit on the project.
  • Specify whether new or absent folders should be fetched when an update is performed.
  • Change the repository location to which the project is associated.
