At starting point you could "flatten" your directories by removing
all of their "plain" content and moving *,v files from RCS directory one level
up and deleting empty RCS directories.

After that you should be able to use cvs2svn.py convert your RCS
projects to SVN. I just checked that with very simple RCS setup.

Of course backup your data and verify your results afterward.

There might be even some script floating around which will do that,
but I didn't find it by quick search.

Somebody with more familiar with cvs2svn.py might give better/more
enlightened advices...

BR, Jani
