Wiki Markup
This plugin currently un-maintained and looking for a new owner. Contact the Jenkins Dev mailing list if you need any further information.

This bundled plugin integrates Jenkins with CVS version control system.

Note: This plugin was part of the Jenkins core until 1.340. After that, it was split out into a separately update-able plugin. However, for backwards compatibility purposes, subsequent core releases still bundle the (old) version. If you do not use this plugin at all, you can simply disable it.
