I don't know if this is the correct newsgroup for this question, if it
isn't please let me know which group would be better.

I'm using Eclipse 3.0 and I have an application which has been built up
over time. Most of the code resides in a single Java project which is
stored in our CVS repository. The project has reached the point where I
would like to move things out into their own project. However, if I
simply move the files from Project A to Project B, the files will all be
'new' in Project B and I will have lost all history associated with the
files. I know there isn't a way to do this from within Eclipse, but is
there a relatively easy way to accomplish this rearrangement from either
the cvs command line level or through careful work within the CVS file
system itself?

It is unfortunate that the version control system in Eclipse doesn't treat
Java files (including the package) or other artifacts as objects which you
could just move around or rename without losing history.

Thanks for any help.
