Hello Larry,

thank you for your reply. I used a tool called "svn-merge-repos.pl"
[1], which worked fine. It was okay for me to screw the revisions as
the merged repositories all come from CVS and thus do not have
meaningful revision information in their logs anyway.

But this one, too, creates revisions that are not ordered in time to
prepare the repository structure for the later merge. This is not a
real problem for me, and imho it does it right: these artificial
commits do not come from any of the merged repositories but are
created by the tool itself.

So the small problem of a weirdly sorted time axis remains :-)

Regards,
Oliver Pajonk
