Hi !

Question is which way to go:
1. Make SVN repository and import CVS (from cvs repository) data to it, and do import
2. Make empty SVN repository and do import

Which is better way, or which way is even possible. I would go with 1 so that I have at least some history...

Another question: Backup

In future I will make regular backups (daily probably). How to do that? I use FSFS.
1. Taring directory with repository
2. use svn tools to create backup

I know that there is tool that makes dump of all data, but I was wondering if taring would be enough (since I am using FSFS)

Thanks for all answers do far
