Sorry, it's outlook and I really don't know much about configuring it :-/ If someone can tell me how to make it wrap, I'm all ears.

Well, since it was a tag *and* a branch, I would assume that that's what it should be. I suppose they could have made a mistake, but that's how it exists in CVS and a translation to Subversion should do the same IMO. I don't view cvs2svn to be a CVS repo fixer, it should just translate from one to the other. Maybe it could be a warning? Once it was put into subversion, the user could certainly fix the problem there, if it is indeed a problem, no?

I'm not sure I agree in this case.
