I just checked my old project (which still exists in it's outdated
form in SF), and it seams that they no longer provide tarballs but
they do allow us to download it via rsync.


Following their how to move from CVS to Subversion I was able to
create an svn dump of ethernut repository ready for being imported, so
it should be possible to move the complete history. cvs2svn even got
smarter than when I used, it seams to try to figure out the actual
changesets to perform a single commit into the target svn dump.

So, I guess we would just have to determine a commit window so others
have a chance to commit their work, then "freeze" for a day or so and
import things into svn.  We might even get it a test drive since it
seams to be easy to import back different dumps overwriting the
entiere repository. :-)

Yeah... I usually use Firefox's Adblock to filter out everything with wildcards.

Kind regards,
