In a workspace I have some projects under version control (a remote CVS server).
a. How do I move the projects to a different workspace and still have the files under version control.

b. How to rename a workspace which has projects under version control.

Ok, I know how to import projects from a different workspace to current workspace. But those projects are under version control. How to have them under version control in the new workspace.
I figured it out. just import your project into the workspace and its all done.

The typical procedure is to simply check them out from version control.

What I've also done in the past is simply copying (from the command line / windows explorer) the whole workspace directory to a new folder. Works fine, even with projects from CVS.

If you move a project directory from one Eclipse workspace to another, but the project doesn't list as being shared on the Team menu, just select "Team/share project". Eclipse is wonderfully intelligent about figuring out how to fixup version-controlled projects. Even to the point of repairing projects that have had their source code repositories moved to a completely different server.

In fact, Eclipse is about the only way I can work with CVS and not get angry with CVS!
