Why phase it over several weeks?  Even if it's a large repository, you
can rsync the files over to the new server over the course of several
days.  Then, when you decide to cut over (usually overnight), run a
final rsync and switch the dns names of the servers.  Voila!  You're
done.  No one has to release sandboxes or change CVSROOT vars.

I'm moving to a new server and have to move a repository. The repository
contains a number of projects, and I would prefer to move them one at a time
over, possibly, several weeks. Having released all sandboxes for a given
project can I just copy that project's directory from /var/lib/cvsroot to
the same place on the new server?
