I've moved my hacked version of cvs2svn to one side and done a fresh

automated diffs between HEAD and trunk etc. here:


I just checked this status page again and I have a few comments/suggestions:

1. The "cvs2svn output (bzip2'ed)" links seem to contain truncated data.

Yeah, I noticed that but haven't got round to investigating/resolving it yet. Bug.

2. How do you decide which entries to color red, and which green?  I
thought it would be based on whether there is a diff between HEAD and
trunk, but I see such diffs for many "green" entries, too.

It's based on the exit code of the cvs2svn process, IIRC.

3. Is the source code for your test runs available somewhere?  I would
like to know the best way to download the CVS repos for the exact
projects that you were testing with so that I can run tests myself, and
the cvs2svn command-line options that you were using.

Yep, the source code for the migration scripts is in the 'svn-migration' module in standard GNOME CVS. The usual details here:

I've created an area where tarballs of the CVS modules can be downloaded. It's still building the tarballs atm.

I've copied 'gnome-infrastructure' in, as this might be of interest there.
