CVS and Subversion sharing source code

Hi all--

I work with a development team that is attempting to coordinate
software development with another team of developers at another
company. The other developers have a CVS repository set up and we
would like to take their code, put it in our own Subversion
repository so we can track and maintain our changes, and then commit
it back to the main CVS repository at various intervals.

Does anybody have any particular advice about how to carry this out,
or advice AGAINST doing this, or any particular knowledge about
whether this is possible? It is not clear to us what sort of gotchas
we are going to run into, but we are hoping that if we take the code
checked out of CVS, and use it to create a Subversion repository
WITHOUT the CVS folders (advice on a painless way to do this would be
helpful!), then we can proceed and both CVS and Subversion will see
any changes as being no different from any users changes. We just
have to be careful never to add the CVS folders to the Subversion
repository, and vice-versa. Right?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Scott
