I guess its time to sort out a consensus about cvs2svn and 1.0.

If you look at the issue tracker, you will be able to see that there are
important defects to be resolved before cvs2svn can be considered 1.0.

cvs2svn simply isn't close enough to 1.0 for the whole STATUS/3
votes/stabilization thing to be workable. I believe most, if not all,
cvs2svn changes on the trunk will need application to the branch - either
because they are small, or because they are complex but fix important bugs.

In other words, it will likely be appropriate to copy cvs2svn from the trunk
to the 1.0 branch.

Max.
