Eclipse Team and CVS 3.2 Test Plan

This plan contains a detailed listing of the features available in the Eclipse CVS plug-in. There are some items that don't have many steps but are meant as a reminder that the features exist and should be tested. If you want to help, please feel free to hammer away on some bits of functionality.

For a more verbose explanation of the CVS plug-in please refer to our documentation.

Latest Stable: 1.11.21
Latest Development: 1.12.13

Repository Location Properties

View a location's properties page and ensure that information is correct and can be changed. Ensure that the sharing information for any projects mapped to the location are also changed.
