BTW, in one of your replies I read that you had a problem with how cvs2svn handles trunk, branches and tags. In reality, this is no problem at all, since Subversion is very good at handling moves within the repository: you can easily change the repository layout after the import to whatevery layout you see fit - without losing any of the version history.
Yes, however, I recall that some clients have problems with displaying history across renames (in particular, I believe viewcvs has this problem); also, it becomes difficult to refer to an old version by path name, since the old versions had all different path names.
Since I only use trac to view the source code (which doesn't have this problem), I can't comment on this.
Jim Fulton has suggested a different approach: cvs2svn can create a dump file, and svnadmin load accepts a parent directory. Then, no renames are necessary.
