Vote for AccuRev in NetBeans IDE!

Mark Claassen, one of several NetBeans Platform developers I met for the first time at JavaOne 2009, is working on AccuRev support in NetBeans IDE:

Issue 159825: Support AccuRev CVS

"It has some issues," writes Mark above, "but works pretty well for what it was designed for. The most important things for me were the quick-diff and seeing which files were modified."

I installed the plugin above and then saw AccuRev represented in the place I would expect:

If you'd like to have AccuRev CVS support in NetBeans IDE, you need to support the issue by voting for it here! Or check out the sources above and contribute to them yourself!


I would like to see GIT in the feature list too ;)

I never used AccuRev.
I used git and bazaar sometimes which NetBeans does not support.

Why not make git and bazaar as first-calss citizen in NetBeans?

Another problem is perfermance of VCS NetBeans provided.
In a big project , I tried to use CVS , but NetBeans eat up all my memery(2G).

Now I only use it to check out source for very small open source project (in most case I use command line tool provided by system) and do nothing else.

If you really want git, bazaar, or anything else, you'll create enhancement requests (or vote for an existing one on that topic), rather than leaving comments here...

This plugin a great idea. We've been using Netbeans for quite a while and have just started using Accurev and would be great to be able to integrate both. I saw you posted the source code, how do we actually use it as a plugin in NB?

Great work!
