After having lived through 809-813 and the problems using CVS, I'm pretty confident that 813 can integrate with CVS to do what I need. However, for a time I turned off my integration, and my repository is no longer worth keeping as it is out of date.
I'd like to restart using CVS on my current project. I've got a project directory with the directory structure I want. I've got a CVS repository already created, but it does not yet have this project in it. I'm on Windows XP, using CVSnt, and I would appreciate some instructions on how to set up CVSnt, IDEA and my project for use.
Some questions I have:
1) Do I need to do an import into CVS to get the project in the repository before IDEA will recognize it?
2) Is there a way to ignore certain directories, such as the "classes" directory?
3) From a broader perspective, I'm using ANT for some build processes, and eventually I would like to automate the process of building my project entirely using just ANT, so that my build script can automatically retrieve the project from the repository and build any version I specify. Are there any hints, pointers, caveats, or other tidbits of information to do this so that I can get a seamless integration with IDEA?
