Re: CVS / Subversion interoperability

I have this working as an initial experiment on my system. Which is fine
for my personal use, but persuading a team to remember to commit to both
repositories at the same time will be awkward.

Getting the initial directory involved having both checked out into two
separate directories, then physically copying one directory tree on top
of the other - I couldn't find any other way of persuading either
Subversion or CVS to do a checkout (to create the CVS / .svn
directories) when there was already a bunch of files and directories
existing - "in the way".
