RE: converting CVSNT repository

Robert,

It's a known issue where cvs2svn.py does not check the return code from the
call to co.exe. Due to that, it does not detect if the call has been
successful. If it was not, you get a repository with empty files.

To solve problems like this I'm working on a version which is (although
slower) not depending on 'co'. I have extreme problems getting cvs2svn.py working
on Windows with this dependency. Having such a version would also allow us
to work around some known issues with rcs's co.

bye,

Erik.
