Description _ pkuzel 2004-12-07 11:12:40 UTC
Workfiles location is specified by repository but
Mount wizard allows to specify it. In reality
database configured one is used. It's confusing.

Expected behaviour: eliminate

   Workfiles:  ______  [Browse]

in PVCS mount wizard.

Also remove non-working Create Project Database
context action. It's fully replaced by Global
Create Project Database.

The "Create Project Database" context action is already removed.

If the "Workfiles location" is removed, we need to add some validation

is the mount point of the filesystem. The filesystem must not be
mounted to a wrong place. This should be possible with the Java
