CVS question


I'm a bit confused with the new CVS integration. Is there a way to add a
directory to CVS? How do I tell which files need to be added and which
don't? Why not list unknown files during checkin and let you add or ignore
them?

Also some files show as blue but then change back to black when I reexpand
the project tree.

Regards,

Glen

The whole point of the VCS API is to take care of mundane but important
matter like add/remove/rename/move a file/directory in a transparent manner.
If you add the directory from within the IDE, it will automatically be in
the list of change that need to be committed. The same for deletion, rename
and move. However if you do it outside of the IDE, the current API doesn't
handle them at all and you will have to manage them outside as well ;-( I
have started a thread of all pending VCS api enhancement that you might want
to vote for

The color change is a known bug in 809 I believe (I haven't tried the new
CVS integration)

Thanks... I put a few votes against 4185 (my votes are getting rather
thinly spread these days).
