CVS-Behaviour

Hello everybody,

is it intended, that the changes view also lists files, those folders have a CVS-dir but are not part of the module-structure? I got several hundred files under some copied directories which are not accessible via the modules, but lay inside the project root.

I would think, as long as they weren't references in a module, they should not be considered in update and commit operations (like it was the way in IDEA 6, btw.).

Another issue: if there's no CVS-dir under the project root, but only inside the modules beneath, updating the whole project using Ctrl-T does not work. This wasn't the case in IDEA 6 and is very inconvenient.

Best regards.

Not really an answer, but maybe helpful:
Note that in Selena you can configure VCS root directories in Settings->Project Settings->Version Control.
In contrast Demetra always used each module's content roots as VCS roots (IIRC).

Thx, I already knew that. I set it up and it worked for me now. Either way, it's not amusing setting up several module CVS roots for each project.I cant see the benefit. Esp. when CVS-managed folders appear in the Change List, although they're not part of the module structure is firstly very confusing and secondly annoying when you want to commit all changes (speacking of "all changes to the configured modules, but not any other changes).

Hello Lothar,

is it intended, that the changes view also lists files, those folders
have a CVS-dir but are not part of the module-structure? I got several
hundred files under some copied directories which are not accessible
via the modules, but lay inside the project root.

Yes, this is intended. You can set Version Control to None for these directories
using the version control settings.

Another issue: if there's no CVS-dir under the project root,
but only inside the modules beneath, updating the whole project using
Ctrl-T does not work. This wasn't the case in IDEA 6 and is very
inconvenient.


This is a known bug which will be fixed soon.
