Re: cvs2svn failure

Following up to myself:

I have no idea how to go about narrowing down the problem to a smaller
set of files. Can anybody suggest things to try?

The CVS repository consists of 89 top-level modules; I tried converting
these separately one by one. 18 of these fail to convert, with error
messages similar to this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./cvs2svn.py", line 2739, in ?
  File "./cvs2svn.py", line 2735, in main
    convert(ctx, start_pass=start_pass)
  File "./cvs2svn.py", line 2572, in convert
  File "./cvs2svn.py", line 2495, in pass4
    c.commit(dumper, ctx, sym_tracker)
  File "./cvs2svn.py", line 2190, in commit
    sym_tracker.enroot_branches(svn_path, svn_rev, branches)
  File "./cvs2svn.py", line 1639, in enroot_branches
    self.enroot_names(svn_path, svn_rev, branches,
  File "./cvs2svn.py", line 1622, in enroot_names
    this_entry_val = self.db[this_entry_key]
  File "./cvs2svn.py", line 157, in __getitem__
    return marshal.loads(self.db[key])
KeyError: 8ba

Now I tried to convert the whole repository again, but deleted those 18
directories first. It still fails to convert, with the same stack trace
as above.

Any suggestions how to proceed?
