RE: Best Practice for cvs2svn

Thanks for the input Blair & Res...i'll check that forum, but it is an
svn question despite the subject. I have cvs2svn working just fine,
along with svn 1.3 & https through apache 2.2 (on RHE). I was just
looking for some advice on how to implement the migration in real life.
I'll go with the weekend big bang theory.

Can this thread happen on users@cvs2svn.tigris.org, not
users@subversion.tigris.org? Thanks.
