Re: cvs2svn and merge to single svn repository

As CVS just uses plain files as its repos, you can merge the CVS
repositories together before you run cvs2svn -- just create a new CVS repos,
and just copy your existing CVS repositories into this directory. You can
then run a single cvs2svn call on the whole thing.

Hope this helps,
