[Reflexe.CVSTool] Simple plug-in to workaround CVSNT login issues

For anyone using CVSNT, you might be interested in a simple IntelliJ plug-in
I wrote to get round the login problem for CVSNT / pservers.

It adds a tool window with an explorer view. Basically, right-click on the
icons to get a pop-up menu, from where you can configure your repositories.
You just need to set the path to the CVS.EXE program in the "settings" tab.

Send me an e-mail with in the subject, and I'll send you a
copy. It's not a commercial product, so there's no support or warranty.
But it works ! ;)

PS: it displays text in English or in French, depending upon your locale. I
could add other translations if someone's willing to translate the (small)
resource bundle.

Hi Chris,
what kind of issues with cvsnt you mean (which version, etc.)? I use cvsnt and might be interested to get around problems with it (although I don't have any for the moment). But seriously, if you provide more info, more likelly people will use it. Also you could put together a wiki page for it.

The only issue I encountered was that IDEA tries to login to CVS using a
.cvspass file. CVSNT stores active logins in the Windows registry. Which
means that IDEA tries to log you in with a .cvspass file, but that'll never
work. Other than that, this CVS client seems perfectly compatible.

I'm using CVSNT as client and server (pserver mode) without problems. This
little plugin simple uses Runtime.exec() to drive the "cvs login" command,
which is an effective workaround.

I don't have time to put together a Wiki page for it, I just posted it on
the forums as I've seen a few people looking there for the same issues I
encountered. I don't envisage developing the plugin further, so I don't see
a need for a project page (it's also a very simple tool, just plugin and
go).
