Own CVS implementation?

Hi JetBrains,

Do you still have the plan to create an own CVS integration for
Aurora? If I can assist you, please let me know.

Cheers,
Tom

Yes, we are working on new CVS integration for Aurora. What kind of
assistance do you mean?

Interesting. Are you using a Java implementation of the CVS client or
are you still using an external CVS executable?

Ciao,

I've thought, I could be of any help because of SmartCVS. But
nevertheless, it just was an idea.

Hopefully this'll include:

- one toolwindow for the CVS filesystem (with ability to list either files
(like "cvs ls") or modules (like "cvs co -c"), and possibility to browse
branches and release tags.

- one toolwindow for file properties, such as listing current status
("up-to-date", "locally modified", "needs patch", etc.), current editors,
and also provide icons/buttons to checkin/checkout/update ... in fact to
perform all the functions you currently have in the pop-up menu.

Something like SmartCVS's "branch explorer" and "annotation view" would be
brilliant! :)

Maybe Thomas could help with the latter point! ;))

Actually, that's what I'm working on at the moment - as an add-on plugin.

Besides IDEA, I use WSAD/Eclipse at work (because of the
Websphere-integration), and although it has its flaws, it has some very
nice features as well. For example, the CVS support WSAD/Eclipse is far
superior to what IDEA offers - (currently, anyway).

I really wish the VCS docs were less, ehm, compact. I think it would be
quite cool to integrate the java-cvs library that Netbeans uses into a
proper cvs-plugin for IDEA. That one is quite mature, although it still
needs built-in ext/ssh support.

That's another thing the Eclipse thing does quite nicely (although,
again, flawed because of a stupid decision to create an Eclipse-specific
':extssh:' connection method, breaking compatibility with all the tools
in the rest of the world. ]]>)

Well, I'm using Eclipse' SSH library in SmartCVS, but it only works
with a subset of the SSH1-servers.

Eclipse' CVS library isn't as independent of Eclipse as it would be
necessary. Netbeans library is quite stable but - for the sake of
backward compatibility - a little bit outdated now. But nevertheless,
it's a good starting point for refactorings.

Cheers,
Tom
