Chapter 6. Customizing Cervisia

Cervisia can be customized in various ways to your needs and preferences. Some options which you may want to change regularly are directly available in the Settings menu.


User name for the change log editor:

Whenever you use the menu item FileInsert ChangeLog Entry..., a new ChangeLog entry is generated with the current date and your username. Normally, it is considered good style to insert your full name and your email address into each of your ChangeLog entries. Cervisia automatically adds the full name and email address entered here.

Path to CVS executable, or 'cvs':

Here you can set the name (or path) to the cvs command line client. By default, the CVS executable found in your $PATH is used by Cervisia.
