Remove CVS plugin from Eclipse

The CVS plugin is tightly integrated with Eclipse, so it’s hard to uninstall it once installed unlike other plugins. To manually purge the plugin from Eclipse, remove the following directory & jars:

eclipse/
├── features/
│ └── org.eclipse.cvs_1.4.100.v20150204-1700/
└── plugins/
├── org.eclipse.cvs_1.4.100.v20150204-1700.jar
├── org.eclipse.team.cvs.core_3.3.600.v20131112-1442.jar
├── org.eclipse.team.cvs.ssh2_3.2.400.v20131112-1442.jar
└── org.eclipse.team.cvs.ui_3.3.600.v20130514-1224.jar

Note I use Eclipse 4.4.2. Your versions of those items may be different. It works for me. I hope it works for you, too.
