Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] CVS support plugin discontinuation - SimRel build changes needed


I thought that Open Source was friendly; not a facilitator for a proprietary business case.

The CVS deprecation was announced in September 2021. It announced removal of the ongoing distribution, not refactoring and breakage.

My understanding of the disciplined deprecation was that two major releases were required after an announcement, but since e6 is impossibly distant the platform has taken to breakage in minor versions. Nonetheless I would expect two releases on the yearly cadence so breakage within 18 months seems very wrong and to merit a regression fix.

The older version of CVS support seem to not be working any more with newer Platform: . While there is clearly no intention for Platform to revive CVS support or anything of that form. the broken or unavailable CVS support seems to be something that is a problem for a few people on StackOverflow. It may be a good business opportunity for some freelancers to try to get in touch with people who seem to need CVS support and turn those CVS users as customers who could fund a forked and up-to-date version of former support; or to get in touch with them and sell some CVS->Git migration.
