Re: incremental conversion from other SCM to svn by vcp

I have implemented svn-labeller and corresponding tagging support
in vcp a few days ago. they should solve most of bizarre tag/branch

but i was unable to have a full run of conversion for the sympa
repository i was testing with, due to some svn commit and revpropset
hanging. :( i did some manual diff for the tagged tree in svn
and cvs, it looks good. (most tags in sympa repo are mixed from
different branches)

anyway the code is available at http://svn.clkao.org/revml/trunk,
I also did some documentation for the logic at
