We had to stop cvs2svn from guessing the 'svn:eol-style' using it's own
algorithm, as it was getting a lot of false positives. Particularly, it
was corrupting binary files (e.g. PNGs/WAVs). Unfortunately, we only
noticed this 8-9 hours after we'd started the migration, so we had to
restart the migration again using cvs2svn's '--no-default-eol-style'
option. Unfortunately, it seems to have had the knock-on effect you've

As this is the second problem with the migration we've had since
cut-off, we've decided to cancel the migration for now pending some
further testing. With the exception of a couple of modules which had
already taken commits in subversion, I'll be re-enabling write access to
CVS shortly. I'll post a list of the modules that will remain in

I'm very sorry to all those disappointed and inconvenienced by this, and
for the confusion it has caused half-doing a migration. We will be doing
everything possible to ensure we can re-schedule this for completion as
soon as possible.
