cvs2svn: branch file addition with --trunk-only

From: Kim Sparrow <ksparrow_at_lightpointe.com>

So I've been happily using svn for a month-or-so now (thanks!), and thought it'd be nice to try moving some of my cvs projects over.

As far as I can tell, the only peculiar thing about the file that it is choking on is that it was created on a branch 1.1.2 (not the vendor branch) and was then merged over to the trunk. So revision 1.1 is dead, and the file starts at 1.2 as far as the trunk is concerned. Should I take it that cvs2svn currently doesn't handle this situation properly? In the mean-time, might it be a reasonable idea to hack the rcs file to fool cvs2svn into thinking it was indeed created on the trunk?

(I'd convert the branches too, but it chokes on the first revision. Perhaps that should be a separate message. I can't figure out what's going on there!)

cvs2svn r8674, Win2k, ActivePython 2.2.2

../cvs2svn.py --trunk-only --dump-only path_to_repos

pertinent output:
