Thanks for that!

It works perfectly for most smaller modules. I'm getting errors on some
(mostly larger) CVS modules, I'm getting "KeyError" errors like "250",
"115", "Db", "fed", depending on which module I'm trying to convert.

I know that branches and tags are still a difficult point for cvs2svn,
so I'm just gonna wait for a 1.0 release. But, on the other hand: I'm
using CVSNT on a Windows machine as a CVS server. Maybe the CVSNT
repositories have a slightly different structure, could that be the
cause of the cvs2svn errors?

I'd probably better ask this on the CVSNT mailing list... but any
thoughts are welcome.
