Hello,

How should I retrieve a specific (non-head) version from cvs? Say I want to
have the stable version 0.7.4, I would expect it to be in the version part
of cvs, but I can not find it there.

I would like to experiment with ecf, but I prefer a stable version instead
of the (unstable?) latest greatest version in the head.

thanks,
Guy

Hi Guy,

We have been perhaps a little negligent in not tagging the repository
prior to stable builds, so unfortunately you will need to a) get the
latest from HEAD; b) use the procedure below for importing ECF plugin
into workspace. We will begin tagging the database right away prior to
every stable release and then it will be possible/easy to revert back to
a tag.


To import plugins into workspace and browse source/debug

1) install the ECF plugins via zips or update site (say 0.7.4)
2) Remove existing versions of those plugins from your workspace
3) Import the plugins into your workspace with

File->Import...->External Plugins and Fragments...->Next->select the ECF
plugins->Finish

you can then import all of the ECF plugin projects into your workspace
and browse the classes...and open/view the source if you like (or set
breakpoints/debug into things if you prefer also). This will be the
source from the given release.

Thanks,

Scott
