cvs2svn question

My apologies if this is not the correct mailing list and please someone point me in the right direction.


My question is about running cvs2svn and having a very high count of revisions in my svn repository after the program finishes. When I read the documentation it says that cvs2svn will try to group commits around a given time to a subversion changeset. But it appears that it is creating a changeset for each file change in the cvs source repository. I end up with ~16k revisions in my new svn repository.


I have tried different settings but cannot get this to work properly. I am running against a copy of the “real” cvs repository and the file system timestamps are all pretty much the same. However, inside each *,v file it contains the actual commit timestamps.


Shouldn’t cvs2svn be looking at these actual commit timestamps and generating svn changesets from them?


Thanks in advance,


Ted Slusser
