I need advice about how to investigate cvs2svn.py problems
I am trying to convert a rather large CVS repository (about 3 gig, lots
of branches) to an SVN repository. The first few attempts, cvs2svn
choked on some tags with typos in them that included '/' characters. I
removed those tags from the repository, and now on my conversion
attempts, it runs for a few hours and then hangs. At least I think it
hangs - it stops writing to standard out mid line:
"adding or changing ...."
and just does nothing. The database is not growing, the process size is
fixed. I tried doing this with dump only, and similar behavior is
observed (no output, dump file size stopped growing).
Does anybody have any advice of what I should do to try to narrow this
down? I attached to the process with strace, and an endless loop-looking
behavior was observed. It seems to not always hang in the same place.
