Thanks for the quick reply, I'll give it a try. I had looked at pysco
back in June, but got the impression that I'd be better off with

Yes, cvs2svn is a one time thing in principle, but I've been running it
a number of times, trying different things, as a means of validating the
switch to git (cvs2svn also does cvs2git).  Since it takes 6.5 days on a
2.4ghz AMD with 32gb of ram to translate our repo, even a small tweak to
the process is quite expensive....
