I have some Android projects using CVS in eclipse. Long time ago when the projects were added, the bin-folder was added too. This has become more and more annoying and I would like to remove it, but how?
My attemps so far:
Right-clicking the bin folder and selecting Team->Add to .cvsignore is grayed out. I guess this only works when the file is new.
Deactivating the Project->Build Automatically, then delete the bin folder and then Commit the changes makes eclipse say: "Nothing to commit". My idea was then to activate Build Automatically again and add the new bin folder to .cvsignore.
Any ideas? If there are any suggestions circumvent eclipse I am open to that also. I have access to the server. But I'd prefer using eclipse to avoid conflicts.
This is a "feature" of CVS. You'll need to physically remove
bin from the CVS server file system in order to make it "forget" about that folder (be careful whenever mucking around with the filesystem of a CVS server!). You may then need to re-check-out the project in Eclipse (although I've seen it work with and without that last step).
You can only ignore files that don't exist on the CVS server at all. Could bin somehow be in the .cvsignore file as well as on the server?
