Successful conversion of 10.5 Gig CVS repository

I'd like to report my (finally) succesful conversion of my 10.5 Gigabyte
CVS repository to Subversion. I tried again about 1 or 2 weeks ago and
got cvs2svn errors, but evidently some changes in cvs2svn this last week
fixed the remaining problems (that I was having) and I finally got my
repository to convert and load this last Friday. I've tried about 4-5
times beginning this last summer and ran into various problems each time.


CVS Repository: ~10.5 Gigabytes
SVN Repository: ~10 Gigabytes
Total Commits: 7754 (spanning from 2000-04-05 to present)
Working Copy: ~6 Gigabytes
Conversion Time: ~10 hours

My supervisor has told me he won't consider Subversion until it hits 1.0
so I'm getting everything in place to present him with the
advantages/disadvantages of converting to Subversion and showing him a
working demonstration from a snapshot of our CVS repository taken last

  Thanks to Karl and everyone else on the team for the hard work and great
