Hi,

I've got a problem with a linked source dir, which is not recognized as a
cvs directory.

My (checked out) cvs structure is like this:

my_sandbox(CVS-Root)
|
|-- Projects
| |
| |-- ProjectA
| | |-- .project + .classpath
| | |-- ProjectA_Documentation
| |-- ProjectB
| |-- .project + .classpath
| |-- ProjectB_Documentation
|-- src
|
|-- org....

So I have the sources for all projects within the directory "src", all
other files for a project are within a parallel project directory (let's
say "ProjectA"). Here are the build files plus .project/.classpath.

When working with ProjectA, the Java sources are a linked resource named
"src",
where the link path is ...my_sandbox/src with a couple of
includes/excludes.
Works fine except that this linked src directory within my project has no
"cvs nature" -- it does not recognize to be a cvs managed directory.
So I can't use eclipse's cvs-Plugin for my sources this way.

My .project looks like this:
<projectDescription>
<name>ProjectA</name>
...
<linkedResources>
<link>
<name>src</name>
<type>2</type>
<location>D:/Dev/my_sandbox/src</location>
</link>
</linkedResources>
</projectDescription>

As usual, the directory structure is "grown". So reorganizing the whole
cvs structure is not an option. All I need is eclipse to recognize a
linked folder as being cvs managed, such that I have full access to all
cvs commands for my sources from eclipse.

Thanks in advance,
Holger

Right, see: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=39612.
