Description ismaelpernas 2009-07-07 10:24:26 UTC
Hi all

I think this is a little issue. 

I allways have the netbeans projects in a directory like "/home/xxx/developer/CVS/projects/yyyy". With older versions of
netbeans i have no problem with the path but with netbeans 6.7 i have an issue: i cant delete any file created for the
project. I think it was a problem of my computer or something else but when i change the "CVS" directory by "cvs" the
problem was resolved.

Is this an issue? This happens with the new version. Is CVS a reserved word?

Thanks all for your work.

Best Regards.

From 6.7 we are handling all CVS subfolders as part of CVS metadata. In the cvs versioning system CVS folders are
reserved and contain cvs metadata.
All such subfolders are supposed to be versioned by CVS yet they are handled a bit differently than other 'normal'
versioned data. This modification was introduced as part of the solution of issue 159453.

Renaming that CVS folder to any other name should solve this, but if that is not possible (you don't have access rights
for this modification or you want to keep that name for any other reasons) in your case, please let us know and we'll
try to find another solution.
