How to remove CVS plugin ? / Bundeled plugins

mj1414...@gmail.com

Hello,

the CVS plugin 2.11 has security warnings:
I don't see an update and it is "This plugin is up for adoption".

OTOH, I don't need it - we're using GIT and SVN. So I've tried to remove it - so far in vain.
"Uninstall" from plugin manager - doesn't seem to do something.
Shut down Jenkins; removed in .../home/plugins cvs.jpi and the cvs-directory. After restart they are both herr again.

I assume, this is because the plugin is bundled with jenkins.war. (See below)

If this is the case: How do I remove it ?
If the bundled state is the problem, then should the plugins with security issues and "open for adoption" be unbundeled, so users not needing it, can get rid of it ?

Regards

Martin

Yes, it is bundled in my understanding:

>unzip -l jenkins2_263_3.war | grep pi

CVS has been unbundled as of  2.271 (https://www.jenkins.io/changelog/#v2.271). So  the next LTS ( based on 2.777 I guess) should allow you to uninstall CVS.
