Convert Eclipse Project Using CVS to Use Git

I am using Eclipse Mars for a Java EE project that currently uses CVS. I am in the process of migrating the source code along with its version history to Git.

When this is achieved, I want to remove any references to CVS from the project and continue with Git.

  • git cvsimport Error: “root … must be an absolute pathname”
  • Reasons to prefer CVS over SVN or Git
  • Ignoring files in git cvsimport
  • Version control advice to manage sites on a remote dedicated server
  • Git - How can I list all files changed on the master branch between two times?
  • How to run Git and CVS over the same folder
  • In the Project Properties dialog Tree View I can see CVS (under Resources and Builder and above Deployment Assembly). I want this CVS item to disappear.

    In a separate project I work on that uses Git I can see a Git item in the Tree View of the Project Properties dialog. I would like that Git item to appear in the aforementioned project as well.

    So, basically I want the project that has references to CVS to reference Git instead.

    I don’t see any simple way to do this and was wondering if a solution to this problem is available.

  • Git lane concept
  • Egit - exclamation point on folder
  • Is git with cvs faster than cvs alone?
  • Git shows files changed, but EGit does not
  • Creating a git Patch in eclipse across commits
  • git-upload-pack not found while adding new repository to Eclipse Git
  • One Solution collect form web for “Convert Eclipse Project Using CVS to Use Git”

    Once you have your git repo in place just delete all the project in your WS (presuming they’re pointing to your CVS location). Then clone your new Git repo and run the ‘Import Projects…’ from the Team menu to get Git versions of the projects back into your WS.

    Git Baby is a git and github fan, let's start git clone.
