Documentation For "New CVS Settings"

I am trying to configure the CVS stuff for our project and I am completely mystified by some of the fields on the "New CVS Settings" screen. There doesn't seem to be any documentation for this page either.

Our CVS repository is on the same machine so the CVS root will be local, and I'm guessing that the field next to it is the path to the CVS repository.

In our CVS repository, we have two directories and I want the one named "ETC" and I am guessing that goes in the "Module name" field. We don't want a branch so I left "Branch name" empty.

The path to the CVS executable is "/usr/bin/cvs" so I put that in the "Path to CVS client" field.

I have no idea what the "Server command" or "VCS checkout subdirectory" fields are for.

Any help is gratefully accepted.

Hello Donald,

I have no idea what the "Server command" or "VCS checkout subdirectory"
fields are for.


Server command:
your command line cvs has to have server mode. Usually the command to run
cvs in this mode is "server"

"VCS checkout subdirectory" - this setting makes sense if there are more
than one vcs root to define relative path for the root in the working
directory.
