Mirroring public CVS repository as SVN

I have a script (attached) that mirrors a public CVS repository locally
as a Subversion repository. Each night it updates the local CVS copy
using rsync, then converts it with cvs2svn. cvs2svn doesn't seem to
have an "incremental" feature, so the previous conversion is deleted and
a new one created from scratch.

The problem is that each time, the UUID changes, so a working copy
checked out the previous day will no longer talk to the repository.

Possibly I shouldn't be using a working copy in this scenareo (after all
it's a read-only mirror), I can still take advantage of "export" and

Anyone got any better thoughts on how to do this?


#NB rsync, cvs2svn and svnserve are ALL cygwin builds.

rsync -r rsync://sourceware.org/ecos-cvs cvs > logs/rsync_out.txt 2> logs/rsync_err.txt
rm -rf svn/ecos_mirror > logs/delete_out.txt 2> delete_err.txt
cvs2svn -s svn/ecos_mirror --retain-conflicting-attic-files --default-eol=CRLF --fallback-encoding=ascii cvs > logs/cvs2svn_out.txt 2> logs/cvs2svn_err.txt

# Ensure svnserve is running (in case we had a restart)
svnserve -d --root /cygdrive/c/ecos_mirror/svn
