Well, it has been at least four years since I ran it on anything.
Maybe that counts as old.
I'm willing to believe it's working better now, but I've had to deal
with geological strata of nastiness older versions produced in various
Subversion repositories (cleaning up that crud was a major motivation
for reposurgeon) and I'm fairly sure I haven't seen the last such
fossils. Every sufficiently old Subversion repository seems to have

I can't be specific now, but that may change shortly. I'm putting
together a test suite for cvsps with the specific intention of
capturing as many odd corner cases as I can. (I just finished writing
a small Python framework for expressing interleaved CVS command
sequences on multiple checkouts in a way that can be easily run.)
It wouldn't be difficult for me to test whether these break cvs2svn.
You've established that someone over there is paying attention, so
I'll do that, I guess.
I'm willing to share my test suite as well. Do you have your own zoo
of odd cases I could test on?
