The CVS component provides the best CVS integration in the best IDE. Because the CVS plug-in includes a pure java client, the support works without requiring a command line client install on the users machine. The advantages of writing a custom java client is that we can implement features that wouldn't be possible using the command line client (e.g. browsing a remote repository, connection re-use). However, this comes with a disadvantage; we must keep up with CVS server revisions and ports, plus keep up with new features.

Tested on Eclipse Luna (built-in) and Mars (installed from here)
I checked out a project from CVS using Cygwin cvs client:
$ cvs -d:pserver:user@host/path/to/cvs login
$ cvs -d:pserver:user@host/path/to/cvs co -kk MODULE_NAME
Then imported it to Eclipse and tried to update. It asked for password again, then failed:
The server reported an error while performing the "cvs update" command.
MODULE_NAME: protocol error: :pserver:user@host/path/to/cvs/MODULE_NAME is not absolute
I also tried the opposite and imported the project from CVS using Eclipse. Then tried to update it from command line.
$ cvs up
: no such repository
The last error is related to the fact that the file CVS/Root has CRLF line ending.
Please investigate the "is not absolute" error.
Please explain why is there an extra colon in CVS/Root that separates hostname ant path?
Is there any good reason to store CVS files with CRLF so only Eclipse understands them?

Does this help?

Hi Wayne. Whoever marked the ticket as invalid was wrong: if cvs program works without colon, so should Eclipse. Are you the author? Is it right to ask here or should I use the Eclipse bugtracker?

I'm not the author. Engaging on the bug tracker is best way to have this resolved.

Installing this plugin breaks CVS completely.
Get the correct version from the Eclipse update site.
