I managed to find an old virtual machine (VMWare) with Ubuntu10 from
2010, which I fired up.
On this machine cvs *was* installed and cvs --version reports:

Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.5.04 (Zen) Build 3236 ()
CVSNT 2.5.04 (Jan 18 2010) Copyright (c) 2008 March Hare Software Ltd.
see http://www.march-hare.com/cvspro

Python on this machine is version 2.6.5.

Is there some way to move an installed package from an Ubuntu machine
to another more recent machine?
Then I could get cvs(nt) on Linux operational on my new Ubuntu 16.04.3
This would make the conversion using cvs2svn possible with an
executable that understands the cvsnt stuff.

Or else I could possibly use the old Ubuntu10 machine....

This machine seems to use an IPv6 address rather than IPv4, which is
used on everything else on my LAN..
