Re: [w] Valid cvs symbols

Hi Carl,

I got the very same error when trying to migrate.
The "Open Source Development with CVS" sais that CVS tag names may contain
letters, numbers, hyphens and underscores and have to start with a letter.
I also sais that cvs is very strict about it, which is obviously wrong. :^)

I had tag names with a slash in them and I used a standard cvs version
to produce these tags (vendor tags in imports in my case).

I didn't have very much of them, so I just renamed the tags inside the cvs

When you successfully migrate your repository I'd be glad to hear about
the statistics (size of repository, number of commits), because I still
have problems with it. :^(

regards, Kai
