Hi,

Is there any way to view history for a whole project or module from any of the Team CVS views?

Failing that, can anyone share the best way to get this information for Eclipse project CVS modeules? I don't mind dealing with console and text results if I have to but a GUI solution would be nice. Basically, I just wnat to go through my logs and find out the changes I've made -- all I need is the number and description. (Seems like it would be easy to do!)

thanks,

Miles

I'm not aware of such way, currently.

There's CVSps - Patchsets for CVS [1] utility which should generate
what you want. I would love to see a pre-compiled version of it
working on Windows without Cygwin.

I wonder, if Eclipse is able to generate such change sets
information in the Synchronize view, why it is not using for the
purpose of viewing module/directory history - may it would be too slow?

Yeah, that's what I was wondering too. I mean the information is obviously there and the team tools handle asynchronous updating very nicely. Looking at some old googled pages it seems like a feature like this might have been available in early versions.

I've found the following enhancement request:

"CVS History View for module not file"
<https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=53164>

However it is resolved as won't fix. It mentions a CVS Change Log
plugin:

http://cvschangelog.sourceforge.net/

I've now remembered I've used it long ago (I have really not used
CVS in a day job, even more for personal use, since more than 2
years, now).

You may checkout a copy of your project at its very first
revision/date, manually remove the sticky tags from the Entries
files in the CVS directories then issue a Synchronize with
Repository - Show Change Set information and you would get pretty
much the history of the module.

You may also checkout the other page mentioned in the report:

http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/platform-vcm-home/d ocs/online/html-cvs/cvs-community.html?view=co

It lists two more ChangeLog plugins you may try out.
