In order to access the bitweaver CVS from Eclipse, a connection needs to be established to
This can be established in one of two ways. If you do not already have an account with sourceforge which is registered with bitweaver you will have to use anonymous access which can be some way behind the current CVS updates.

Select the CVS Repositories perspective
Add a new repository location ( Right click in list and select New->Repository Location )
Set host to ->
Set Repository path to -> /cvsroot/bitweaver
Set User to -> anonymous
Set Password to -> (leave blank)
Set Connection type to -> pserver

This will create an entry in the list.
Right Click on this entry and select Properties to allow you to 'Use a custom label' which you can set to bitweaver rather than the log default setting

If you are a registered developer, then you can use secure access which follows the same setup sequence, except you use your own sorceforge username and password, and set connection type to extssh.

Here is an screenshot from my setup. (Tinjaw)

Once you have a connection to soureforge, a list of projects available under HEAD will be listed, go down to ReleaseOne near the bottom, and via right click select Check Out to build a local copy of the current ReleaseOne version of the CVS.

This will be expanded as required and has just been created as a crib so *I* can reset my Eclipse configuration as required (:biggrin:)
