CVS Source Control Block

Please refer to Using CruiseControl.NET with CVS for an overview of this block.
For CVS you must define where the CVS executable (if you give a relative path, it must be relative to the ccnet.exe application) is and the working directory for checked out code.

cleanCopy Specifies whether or not a clean copy should be retrieved. Boolean No true 1.2
cvsroot The cvs connection string. If this is unspecified and your working directory contains a previous checkout, then the CVS client will attempt to determine the correct root based on the CVS folder in your working directory. If the working directory does not contain the source, then this element must be specfied. String Yes n/a 1.2
dynamicValues The dynamic values to use for the source control block. Dynamic Values array No None 1.5

restrictLogins Only list modifications checked in by specified logins. String No None 1.2
suppressRevisionHeader Suppresses headers that do not have revisions within the specified modification window. Setting this option to true will reduce the time that it takes for CCNet to poll CVS for changes. Only fairly recent versions of CVS support this option.
