I am trying to use CVS with EPF, but am pulling my hair out...|
1) I created a new Method Library and created a bunch of plug-ins (so
several people can work independently.
2) I set up a CVS repository and committed all my plug-ins under a single
project folder matching my ML name.
3) I'm trying now to author in one of those plugins by starting from
scratch - just a raw EPF installation
4) I followed the instructions in the online help "Support for CVS"
5) When I get to the part that says:
Now the snapshot view can be populated.
1.. Switch to the CVS Repository Exploring perspective.
2.. Go to the HEAD or Branch nodes.
3.. Right-click and select Check out to check out the desired library.
4.. By default the library is checked out in the Composer workspace.
That all works... Problem is, when I switch to the Authoring perspective, I
see none of the plugins in the browser -- just an empty Configurations
I thought the problem was that checkouts were putting my files in my
workspace, instead of my Method Library, so I even resorted to checking out
the plugins individually into the project. But despite my repeated
experiments, I can't get these things to appear.
Some of my experiments resulted in failure because of a missing .project
file - what's that about? When I checked in, there was no .project file
Help - I'm increasingly frustrated with this thing! I need to write some
processes and I'm fighting with my tool!
