Hi Markus, thanks for the info.  The cvs import stuff is all for one-time moving from CVS to monotone changes right?  Unfortunately, we won't have that luxury ;)

I'm working on nvm.cvsimport-branch-reconstruction, which is based on
the concepts of cvs2svn 2.0, fiddling with the DAG to resolve CVS
inconsistencies and to find branch starts and tag points.

It's still buggy and doesn't work for the large and old repositories I'm
interested in. However, you might give it a try with your repository and
see what you get. I'd be interested in your results.

cvs2svn is so far the best I know WRT sanitizing information from CVS.
However, it is made to export to svn and recently also to git. Maybe
others as well in the mean time.
