Adding CVS Support to MOTODEV Studio [TIPS & TOOLS]

motodevMOTODEV studio for Android is a wonderful piece of machinery. Unfortunately, as of version 1.0.1, it comes with a number of core Eclipse plugins missing, most notably – no support for CVS. Luckily this can be easily helped.

Here are the steps:

  1. “Help -> Install New Software”
  2. Click “Add” button
  3. Enter something for name, e.g. “Galileo”
  4. Enter location: “”
  5. Click OK
  6. At this point I actually had to restart IDE because for some reason it wasn’t picking the packages
  7. After restart open “Help -> Install New Software” again
  8. From “Work with” dropdown select “Galileo –”
  9. Enter CVS into “type filter text” field
  10. You should see and be able to select “Collaboration -> Eclipse CVS Client”
  11. Click “Finish” and restart IDE
  12. Enjoy!

This is also applicable to any other plugin from Galileo update site or any other plugin update site you may want to add.
