Could this by any chance be the FreeBSD CVS repository (given the
@freebsd.org address in your sig)? If so what did you do to make it
convert successfully?

I've been trying to find something other than perforce that allows
me to hack FreeBSD sources without having CVS in the way since CVS is
seriously preventing me from getting any work done... so far any conversion
tool I've tried chocked on the FreeBSD repo. I've tried various git,
mercurial and monotone converters. To be honest I haven't tried cvs2svn
yet because as far as I understand it does not support incremental imports.

A tool that does not import the entire history but starts at a certain
point in time and goes on from there would be sufficient for my use case.
