CVS Settings

When you are setting up your version control configurations on the Version Control Settings dialog, and you set the configuration type to CVS, the dialog  presents a set of fields specific to CVS-based configurations. You can then define details such as:

The working copy folder to be used with the configuration
The path to the CVS command line client

Click on this button to specify the path to the CVS command line client, by opening a file browser dialog and navigating through the file system to locate the appropriate file.

 

 

VC Time-Out Value

Specify the amount of time that Enterprise Architect waits for a CVS command to complete; if the command does not complete within the allowed time, the system displays a Time-out error message, detailing the command that failed to complete.

This single time-out value is applied to all Version Control Configurations (of types SVN, TFS and CVS) that the user accesses from this workstation.

 

 

Notes

When connecting to a remote CVS repository, the Current User field should display the user name used to log into that repository; if this does not happen, it indicates that Enterprise Architect cannot extract the user name from the file ...\WorkingCopyPath\CVS\Root and the configuration does not work correctly
You define the CVS-specific details as part of the broader process of setting up a version control configuration on the Version Control Settings dialog
