I am a new user and have a small question:
Is CVS no longer supported by Intellij? Because the support-section is in the archive.
My problem with CVS is that I cannot use the GUI to select branches or tags. Every time I open those parts of the GUI IDEA starts downloading and parsing the (complete) cvs log. The whole process gets slower and slower. At about 76MB data loaded it is down to <1kb/s and fully uses one CPU-core. At some point the whole program becomes unresponsive.
Our CVS-repository is quite old, so it has accumulated a lot of data. But Eclipse, which I used before, did the listing of tags in just a few seconds.
Is there anything I can do to optimize this?
