Re: changing repo layouts

Check out the cvs2svn help. There's a command line parameter that allows you
to specify where branch and tags should go. You can also specify what
branches and tags you do want to move over too.

Unfortunately, I don't remember it off hand, but that's what I used. Do a
cvs2svn --help (or something like that). It'll list all of its command line
parameters. That's how I found it.

BTW, don't use the command line parameter that adds a cvs2svn:cvs-rev
property on your files. It's tempting to use, but it causes loads of trouble
later on because that property sticks with your files forever. If you do use
it, you have to checkout your entire repository, remove it, and then commit
everything back. Big, big mess.
