    • No commits to CVS must happen after that time.

    • SVN Conversion Issues
    • SVN plugins added:
      • mail to -cvs
      • case insensitivy check
    • Other interesting stats:
      • Time to convert the CVS repository to the dump file: ~20 minutes
        • (needed multiple runs)
      • Dump file size: 1.97Gb
      • Time to compress bz2: ~ 20 min
      • Compressed dump file: 200Mb
  • mailing lists
    • sending commit messages to cvs list

  • documentation
    • list...

  • svn properties needed
    • .cvsignore -> directory property
    • tanders believes there may be a number of properties (mime-type, eol-style) issues
      • binary files should have been marked as such ("cvs admin -kb") before the conversion
      • some of them (images etc.) now fixed in SVN (copy from CVS, remove svn:eol-style, add mime-type, commit)
      • TODO: images in htdocs/tutorial; *.dsp/*.dsw/*.bat files in dist/win32
      • Remaining Corrupt images:
        • tutorial/tutorial-{4,5}/demon/vacm/{snmpSec4.gif,vacm.jpg}
        • tutorial/tutorial-4/toolkit/mib_module/set_actions.jpg
          [tutorial-5 version OK]
        • tutorial/tutorial-{4,5}/mrtg/*.png
        • dev/agent/doxygen.gif
          [doxygen.png OK]
  • fixing conversion issues
    • Various log entries have non-ascii characters that is causing the SF SVN server to fail.
      • will require a support request to SF
