cvs2svn.py is not the only conversion utility. As others have
mentioned, cvs2svn.py does do branches and tags, but has bugs. Try it
out. If it works for you, that's great, but if it doesn't, you might
want to try a conversion utility with a different set of features (and
possibly bugs) :)

refinecvs can be found here:

There's also one based on VCP (the perl based module for converting
between various version control systems):

I see VCP is mentioned on the Subversion links page, but refinecvs is

I have nothing to do with cvs2svn.py, refinecvs or VCP. I have tried
out cvs2svn.py and refinecvs. They both seem to work for me, but do
things differently.

cvs2svn.py can convert a whole CVS repository or (almost) any arbitrary
subtree of one. You can't convert an individual RCS file, though. You
have to put it in a directory and convert the directory.
