RE: Re: Simultaneous use of Subversion and SourceSafe

When we migrated from VSS to SVN, we considered using both
simultaneously, but opted to just create a VSS label and import a
checkout from that label into SVN. We then set the project read-only in
VSS to prevent anyone from checking in any changes to VSS.

That's exactly what I do. I use VSS to check out a snapshot from their
DB and then check it in on a "vendor branch" in my Subversion repo. Then
I branch that to create a working branch for my additions. It's tedious,
and we're in the process of getting them converted to Subversion.

I'm curious to know if anyone's tried to run a VSS shop simultaneously
on VSS and SVN, checking into both during the transition and training
period?
