command line client. There is one method for each CVS command, e.g., add,
checkout, commit, etc. The methods assemble the command line
arguments, create a CvsJob and return a DCOPRef object for it
to the caller. There is one instance of this service for each
This DCOPObject manages the configuration data of the current
CVS repository. The data is automatically updated when other
service instances change it.
This class represents a CVS job. You can execute and cancel it,
and you can retrieve the output of the cvs client by either
connecting to the proper DCOP signals or by using the output()
method. There are two types of jobs. First the non-concurrent
job which has to run alone, like cvs update or import. Second
the jobs which can run concurrently like cvs log or annotate.
The CVS service is provided with Cervisia, which is part of the KDE
Software Development Kit.
