These are the packages for Redhat 9 from David Summers at:


$Revision 7921

I misread the error message(never used python before) what language
structure does python use to have "common" as an attribute? I've grepped
rcsparse for the word common with no results.

I dont think thats the problem anyway, or the import statement at the
top of cvs2svn would fail (right?) and the call trace would be from line
8, not 338 as above.

I am a bit suspect about the version of rcsparse being used though.

I've just been hunting for rcsparse on the viewcvs site, and its been
atticed with the comment

"This module is no longer needed. Use the vclib.ccvs.rcsparse module
instead." on Sep 5 2002.

The version I have installed on my machine is quite different from the
version in attic on their site.

Any suggestions are welcome.
