Re: "svnadmin load" a huge file

I migrated a large CVS repository (25-50 GB) to SVN years ago on SVN
1.3. Our repo had many sections (projects) within it. We had to
migrate each project independently so that it's team could coordinate
when they migrated to SVN. As such, I dumped each project when ready
and then svnadmin loaded each dump into it's own path/root (so as not to
overwrite anything previously loaded and unrelated to this project's

So, you can do it by controlling which path/portion of CVS you use
cvs2vn to create the dump file from.
