I've done my deal of CVS related work, and I believe this should be
feasible relatively easily and might be worth giving a try...

I was a bit unsure about the value of doing that. I checked the CVS logs and found that none of the 2.x versions of Gnatsweb used the repository during development. Only release versions have been checked in.

It also appears that Bob Manson's changes for GNATS 4.x compatibility were checked in in one go, and since then there really haven't been that many significant changes on the main branch.

So all in all, importing the whole tree will not provide any more history for the 2.x versions and not much more for the 3/4.x development branch, so I don't think it's worth it to go through the trouble of doing that.

Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

(By, the way, I got confirmation from the FSF that Dirk's copyright assignments are on file, so I'll probably try to get the patch checked in sometime tomorrow)
