 Hunh? How can we ship svn without a converter? Our entire purpose is
 to replace CVS.

We're already shipping svn without a converter :-).

Could also ask, why wasn't this a big deal before now? We've been
tossing cvs2svn issues into Post-1.0 for ages, starting with the
original issue #514. This is nothing new. But probably you just
didn't notice, or you would have asked earlier...

I completely agree that cvs2svn is important. But the ability to
convert a particular versioned datastore to Subversion is unrelated to
Subversion's own readiness for use. Subversion could be bug-free and
have first-class changeset support... Would we then say Oh, it's not
1.0 yet, because we don't have a tool to convert CVS repositories.?
What about all those people starting new projects? It's not 1.0 for
them? Sure it is.

Maybe the real problem is that we have this milestone label Post-1.0
that we use to mean two different things:

   1. This is a Subversion bug, but it need not block a 1.0 release.

   2. This bug isn't really about Subversion, so it need not block a
       1.0 release.

We could start using the `inapplicable' milestone for category (2), or
use some new nomenclature, if we can think of something clearer.
