Description Martin Entlicher 2002-09-11 10:17:47 UTC
The users of CVS usually either use the "cvs edit"
feature regularly or don't care about it at all.
For those who use it, there should be a better
- more prominent position of "cvs edit" and "cvs
unedit" commands,
- extended file annotation like [status; version;

This enhancement was proposed on nbusers (see

What about this new command ?
Comment 2 Jiri Kovalsky 2002-09-11 11:25:18 UTC
If you chain it with refresh and edit commands, it works as Jeff
requested. It uses one free index slot for additional attribute.
Comment 3 Martin Entlicher 2002-09-11 11:32:43 UTC
Thanks Jiri for the fast patch submission!
I'll add support for editors annotation to the Refresh and Refresh
Recursively commands on folders as soon as I get some time for this.

It would be handy to change the popup menu a little as well, thus I'll
probably add a new checkbox for editing stuff into the CVS customizer.

The total lack of CVS edit support in NB 5.0 makes the IDE CVS unusable for our
project (Project Looking Glass). Our community members make extensive use of cvs
watch which causes the files to be checked out read-only.

There is no way in the IDE to gain write access to such files, forcing the user
to resort to the command line or find another IDE.

This is a critical ommission from 5.0

paulby, this is a wrong issue. The correct one is issue #40809.
The cvs edit actually *is* implemented in a cvs profile for vcsgeneric module,
which is available at the Update Center. If you install the CVS profile from
there, you get support for almost all CVS commands and options.
