local repositories are not supported by IDEA. And shouldn't be used anyway, unless you got a crash for corrupted repositories.

Solution: set a pserver on your machine and use CVS thru the pserver.

I've been using a local CVS repository for three years with absolutely no problems --- until I upgraded to 823, which removed CVS :local: support.

:local: support was removed in 818, when IDEA ceased to use an external CVS executable and started being a CVS client itself.

Don't flame me here but... wouldn't the local VCS be enough for you?

I'm just asking because I don't know... I don't use the local VCS because I have a dedicated CVS server.

Is there a plan to reintroduce :local support in a coming beta?
