Importing a Local Directory to CVS Repository

You can import an entire directory to your CVS repository, provided that you have the corresponding access rights. This action is helpful for putting a whole project under version control.

Import to the repository is always available, even when CVS is not enabled in project.

To import a directory into CVS repository

  1. On the main menu, choose VCS | Import into CVS.
  2. On the first page of the Import into CVS wizard, select the target CVS root. If the desired target repository does not exist, you can create a new one. To do that, click Configure, and define the desired CVS root. Click Next.
  3. On the second page of the wizard, select the target directory in the repository, and click Next.
  4. On the third page of the wizard, select the local directory that will be imported into the CVS repository. Click Next.
  5. In the Customize Keyword Substitution page, specify the keyword substitution rule for the files imported into the repository, and click Next.
  6. Specify the required import settings. The fields of this page correspond to CVS command-line arguments for import, and additional options that define the checkout status of the imported directory.
  7. Click Finish.
