O.k. everyone pay attention, I am about to agree with Greg! ;)
Greg are their tools to migrate CVS to monotone or whatever your
favorite is? The reason I ask is that I migrate the CVS to SVN every 4
hours I think it is and it isn't perfect.
You get weird messages in the logs that don't track right. Remember, we
have a very large repo.
Anyway, my point is, if we have those tools, why don't we do a
migration, have some peer review on the migration and actually make an
argument based on the results versus the theory?
I am happy to help with this any way I can, because I would love to see
CVS take a big diving leap off the backend of mysql into the truncated
data set of hell.
