RubyMine 7.0.0 Web Help

CVS integration of RubyMine helps coordinate the activities of team members, who concurrently work on the same files or directories.

CVS watches enable you to notify the users of a CVS repository whenever a file has been opened for editing, or committed. If you watch a file or directory for changes and commits, you are added to the list of watchers.

Usage the commands related to watches depends on configuration of the $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/notify file.

Edit and Unedit commands change read-only status of the files or directories under CVS. If the sources were checked out with the option -c, you can apply Edit command to make them writable. In this case you are added to the list of editors. When you are done with editing, use Unedit command to restore read-only status. So doing, you are removed from the list of editors. If watching is configured, the watchers will receive email notification about these events.

In fact, the option Use read-only flag for not edited files in the CVS provides the same functionality automatically. If this option is checked, Unedit always applies to the source files after commit.

Edit and Watch commands apply to all the files you have selected in the current view (including all the files in any selected directory), or to the current file in the editor if you invoked the command there.
