Re: CVS to SVN mirror

If you only update once a day then you won't mind the commits in between,
just the end result. In that case I'd export from their cvs repo, copy the files
over a local svn working copy and commit this, preferably with their commit
messages which you might get with cvs -r last:new log or something. But
that won't handle deleted or added files.

Safest but also most complicated would be a script which reads all the
necessary info from cvs and reproduces all steps to your local svn.
