cvs2svn issues using Windows

Hi,

i'm trying to migrate my repositories from CVS to SVN on a Windows XP
machine. After
installing Python and RCS Tools, i got an error message out of cvs2svn.py
because
the rcs version files where nout found.

IMHO this bug appears, because on windows, the default suffix for rcs files
may not be ,v.
After explicitly setting the suffix with -x,/ and opening the files binary
mode, everything
worked fine.

Change (Line 1068-1069 of cvs2svn.py):
     pipe = os.popen('co -q -x,v/ -p%s %s'
                     % (cvs_rev, escape_shell_arg(rcs_file)), 'rb')

Perhaps you could integrate this little fix in the official version?

Regards,
Ralf
