Re: incremental conversion from other SCM to svn by vcp

Thanks for the IRC conversation just now, Chia-liang. Here's my

   - The subversion dest driver for VCP handles branches pretty well,
     because VCP itself already does the branch-point finding. So
     branches are created as copies, with the appropriate files added
     or removed when necessary. The revision history of your sample
     repository at http://svn.openfoundry.org/svn/sympa/ shows this.

   - But it doesn't handle tags, because VCP doesn't deduce the tag
     points in the same way. Instead, it just marks the tags per file
     revision... which doesn't help us much in Subversion.

   - The conversion time seems a bit slow to me (7 hours for 2000 svn
     revs with four branches). Extrapolating from cvs2svn.py's
     performance right now, I think it would do that in 10 minutes at
     the most. But perhaps there are optimizations you are planning?

Because of the tag problem, and the timings, I'm continuing with
cvs2svn.py (which I judge to be "near" completion, famous last words).
But I hope you're planning to continue with the VCP work -- it's an
important gateway to other SCM systems. And if it eventually makes
cvs2svn obsolete, no one will be happier than me! :-)
