I've moved repositories between servers, and recovered them from
backup, without any problems.  The only thing was to change
permissions on the repository files to be correct (just a "chgrp -R").

This is the kind of thing that CVS is really good at (compared to,
say, Visual SourceSafe) - it just works.
