Re: RCS to svn

Thanks for all your hints,

migration via CVS seems to be the easiest way to do it.

I did not look at rcs2cvs, but the following simple solution
seems to work (at least for a small project consisting only
of a bunch of ,v files):

1. create a new CVS project with the required directory tree
    (in the simplest case just an empty directory)

2. copy the ,v files into the corresponding
    directories *in the repository*

3. checking out a working copy should already work

4. use cvs2svn

    Important: make sure, that all ,v files are unlocked (rcs -u),
    or you will get the (slightly disturbing) error message

    ERROR: '<file>' is not a valid ,v file

Best regards,
Marcus
