If project is checked out, there is no possibility for changing values of cvs
settings. It will be better to have some manager or in project properties
settings for this purpose.
Comment 1 Maros Sandor 2005-05-12 13:32:37 UTC
Currently, there is no way of changing any cvsroot's properties (password, proxy
settings). However, password can be changed, if a command fails due to
authentication failure.
Comment 2 Maros Sandor 2005-06-08 17:05:12 UTC
All connection properties of a CVSROOT can now be changed if connection to a
particular CVSROOT fails. Petr, am I right?
Comment 3 _ pkuzel 2005-06-09 10:36:24 UTC
Yes, except one minor issue.

For :ext: user can not change external/internal flag. It's possible only from
Checkout wizard.
Comment 4 _ pkuzel 2005-10-17 13:51:06 UTC

Comment 9 Karthikeyan Rajeswaran 2007-03-12 06:53:25 UTC
The older-style versioning system provided a 'Versioning Manager' which let the
user add and remove project directories from version control. This feature is
missing in the new-style system.
There is a cvsroot-change module available for NB6, which lets the user change
the cvsroot, but it doesn't seem to support setting the cvsroot to null or empty
value; in other words there doesn't seem to be any way in the new system to mark
a directory as not-under-version-control.
