Congratulations! Maybe you can help me. I just started in a new job and
am trying to convert the existing codebase from VSS to SVN/TSVN.
Unfortunately, the vss2svn.pl script seems to bomb out every time after
about 50 revisions with an access-denied error from SVN in its
working-working copy. How did you manage to convert 9,900 revisions?
