Best Practice for cvs2svn

From: James Levinson <jlevinson_at_ziprealty.com>

I am doing a cvs2svn conversion and I was hoping NOT to shutoff cvs, but
let people migrate at their own pace...
 
Thus, I have been trying to write a cvs hook script that would commit to
svn. My logic was this: Commit to cvs Repos ---> Update cvs Working dir
---> Copy file to svn Working Dir ---> Commit to svn Repos.
 
I was trying to do this all in a perl script called from the cvs loginfo
hook. The problem is locking when I fire off the cvs update and I can't
seem to get around it. I tried forking it into the background but no
luck.
 
Anybody ever try to do this ? Should I abandon and just do a big-bang
migration of my dev team. Or is there another way? Any advice much
appreciated ? Thanks.
