    I’m using Eclipse 3.0.1 with MyEclipse 3.8.3.

    Not sure if this is a MyEclipse issue, but I can’t seem to successfully filter CVS-related directories so they don’t appear in package explorer in my Java web project. I’ve tried adding CVS,CVSROOT to the “Name filter patterns” textbox of the Java Element Filters dialog, and that works up to a point. It hides those directories from view every place except the source tree. There it removes the CVS directory under the root, but all other CVS directories in all subsequent nodes continue to appear.

    I see that Eclipse bug 21128 sort of addresses this, but it makes mention of enabling the CVS plug-in. I don’t use the plug-in since I’m working from a CVS file-share, not a proper server, and I use Ant scripts run from Eclipse to do all my CVS work.

    Anybody else encounter the same or a similar problem?

    Moving to OT Soft dev, this is a Eclipse question.

    On a side note, you are filtering the only way I know how to. If the project is not attached to a CVS repo (in your case, its not) then the CVS dirs are plain old DIRs and need to be hidden by way of filtering that you are doing now.
