once there is a SVN repository, it could easily be integrated into Wald or any
other SVN infrastructure.
This first step (cvs2svn) needs to be done anyway and this is the one that
It is good that the binary problems are fixed meanwhile, I didn't notice this
IIUC, we just need to define a time for commit stop and then take a snapshot of the
CVS repository, apply cvs2svn to it (find out about apropriate parameters, I have
done this task a couple of times), check the result and put it into the development
platforms' SVN place.
