Yes, I just tried it again with today's version, revision 8559 that is.

Well, here is an example:


It's a rather small CVS module which gives "KeyError: Db" when I try to
convert it. The output of the conversion command is available here:


I'm using revision 8559 of cvs2svn (and rcsparse), with (ActiveState)
Python 2.2.2. I've even installed RCS itself (Windows version, from
http://www.cs.purdue.edu/homes/trinkle/RCS/) and use CygWIN that
provides the GNU sort command (although it seems that RCS and the "sort"
command are not really necessary?).

If you want to have a look at the bigger modules that give KeyErrors on
conversion, let me know and I'll send you a link by private email.

Thanks for the help,
