Re: CVS Modules / SVN Externals

There's a scalability issue with cvs2svn.py in its use of ?dbm for local
temporary storage while it's doing the conversion to produce the dump
file. That issue is being worked on now. You may want to hold tight,
or even better, volunteer to test fixes :-)

Cheers...
