Setting up a group CVS account
Usually you can use your own home directory for CVS. This document assumes that you are working with one or more people. A group directory is created on our cvs server and shared between the members.
Send in a request
Someone in your group or the TA of a course can e-mail the request to firstname.lastname@example.org. If possible specify:
course number list of cs usernames for group group name (optional)
We will then supply you with the directory (Usually /xtra/groupname) on the cvs server cvs.cs.mcgill.ca
Create the CVSROOT
Using an SSH client connect to cvs.cs.mcgill.ca and do the following:
cd /xtra/groupname mkdir /CVSROOT
You have now created a cvs root for your project or assignment.
In Eclipse, get a CVS Repositories Window and select the Add a new CVS on the toolbar of that window.
You need specify the following:
host : cvs.cs.mcgill.ca repository path: /xtra/groupname (your group name) user: your own personal login password: your own personal password connection type: extssh use default port : yes test: yes
You have now established access to your group repository.
To use it, go to one of your Java Project and with the context button select Team -> Share Project
