Re: Need SVN -> VSS converter

Hmmm thanks for the info, well let me elaborate. I'm being brought in
new to run the next development phase of this project which is lot of
development merging into the existing source tree. Based on my
discussions with my client if I don't get the repository switched over
by Tuesday, and this is a HUGE codebase of an existing, I need to
convert the version history since as a new lead I am not familiar with
the source tree and I'm trying to avoid the licensing issues. Any
ideas?

Thanks much,
Phil Manicyrck, MCAD/MCSD.NET/MCSE
