Using CVS within Project Builder Apps
A while ago I followed a set of easy instructions for using CVS with an existing Project Builder project. I needed it again and I came to macosxhints and searched, expecting to find it here. To my surprise, I couldn't seem to find it.

After a little googling, I found the article on cocoadevcentral. I thought it might be useful to add it to the hints database.

Some more info on this:

* If you want to use CVS in Project Builder on an existing project, you have to check in the project builder project files (projectname.pbproj/) to the repository!

* If you use SSH to access the CVS server, take a look at this link for info on passwordless CVS access through SSH.

Using CVS within Project Builder
Authored by: fca on Sep 11, '03 09:46:02AM

Hello everybody,
project builder works nicely with CVS indeed, however there is a small trick to play. After you created your project (say in ~/project/fca.pbproj) just do

cd ~/project/fca.pbproj
mkdir CVS
cd CVS
touch Root

close the project (alt-action-W) and reopen it. CVS functions will not be dimmed any more. By definition if you check in and out the project directory it will work, but it is a bit radical. I have two large trees of files which sit on different parts of my filesystem with different CVS root, the project files sit again somewhere else. With this little trick (apparently undocumented) everything seems to work. Regards,

The link referenced in the hint is offline. Here is the short version:

To use Project Builder for source-code control, your project's files must already be part of a CVS repository and checked out. Project Builder reads the CVS root file in your project's folder and sets itself up automatically.

You can find detailed info in Apple's Developers Documentation.
