I would suggest: don't do this at all. Use cvs2svn to convert your
existing CVS repository to a Subversion repository. Then use the
Subversion repository only. cvs2svn is a well-tested and often-used
script so I hope it will work for you. If you have questions about
cvs2svn, it has its own mailing list.
