Yesterday I installed Eclipse 2022-03 on my Linux laptop. While installation I tried to add the additional packages I need (EPIC, bash Editor, etc). Trying to activate CVS client I did not succeed.
I think I need some hints how to get it activated. Most of our code is saved to CVS repositories so I need to have this functionality.
Thanks
Sincerely
Joern

Sorry, CVS support was dropped.

When you rely on this feature, you should be able to install it from a previous release. This might work now, but it is not guaranteed for the future.

You could also build & maintain the feature yourself.

Or just use an older version when interacting with CVS.

Please understand that development resources are limited and have to focus on more widely used features.

Or you should consider getting involved or sponsoring someone to get involved on your behalf:

The runway has grown short...

Same problem here.
CVS plugin works here after in-place upgrade from Eclipse 2021-12 to 2022-03.

Or follow the rest of the world and convert your CVS repositories to Git before that support is also dropped... ;)

We found that you can install 2022-03 directly and then install the CVS functionality by installing the Eclipse 2021-12 (4.22) support for CVS.

On Eclipse, click on Help -> Install New Software...

On the Available Software dialog, click "Add". On the "Add Repository" box, enter Name: CVS Support; Location: https://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/updates/4.22

Click "Eclipse CVS Client" and install the CVS Client components.

I hope this continues to work. While we would love to migrate to Git, we have a 20 year old CVS repository and a CVS-oriented development process that we just don't have time to stop and migrate.

No, it's really gone:

https://www.eclipse.org/lists/cross-project-issues-dev/msg18643.html

For it to come back someone (i.e, someone like you or your organization) needs to physically do the work to maintain it long term and to include it in the builds long term.

Only a few member companies have joined the Eclipse IDE Working group and CVS support is not a priority for those members either:
