Thanks, I did try that when I ran cvs2svn and passed in
--exclude=TAG_TO_REMOVE* but it did not remove them when it converted.
I thought afterwards that perhaps that line would remove branch tags and
not file tags? My conversion completed with no errors, just all the
tags I did not want to carry over.

If I'm correct, it's possible to instruct cvs2svn to ignore tags with
certain patterns in the conversion (ie it won't recreate matching tags).

HTH,
