I found a post on the net stating that CVSROOT directory *is*
necessary but that cvs2svn does not use any info therein during
However, I believe that I need to use the flag --use-cvs in order to
parse the CVSNT repository properly and this might mean that cvs
itself will use CVSROOT for something.
And then I have the problem of stuffing projects from the 6 different
repositories into SVN: Which CVSROOT should be used during conversion?
Or can all of them be there at the same time?

I realized that I have used one CVSNT specific item and this is the
keyword -kbx, which means that some binary files have been marked as
binary with the exclusive editing flag. Typically this involves

Can cvs2svn deal with the -kbx keyword, for example by treating it as
