I moved more than 1000 files from Source Integrity to CVS. All but about
80 came through with their histories retained. For the others I had to
make them "born again" as of the transition time. I used scripts found
from this pointer:

If that is a dead link, I can come up with copies of the scripts, or my 
minor variations on them.

If you are moving from VSS to CVS, you may find something helpful here

Use vcp.  It exports each change from VSS into a platform-independent 
XML format called RevML, then imports from RevML into CVS.

You may want to post your question in that newsgroup, too.
