Using cvs2svn. Conversion took about three days, phase 1-7 one day and
phase 8 about 2.5 days.

cvs2svn finished without problem. what won't finish is git-svnimport.
I wanted to compare the results of git-cvsimport with the results from
taking a trip through subversion.

cvsimport, another person has done this but we did it at the same
time.. cvsimport needs 2GB+ physical RAM or it swaps to death. The
extra RAM I ordered just came today so I can try it for myself.

It took about three days for cvsimport to finish too.
