Whatever you do, make sure you use tags liberally.  You should tag the whole
repository before you start and after you are done.  You should probably
also add tags in stages as you are going along.  It will pay off when you
find you committed something that was not merged properly.

Lots!  The sandbox's state information doesn't correspond with
the restored repo.  I don't know what the results will be, but it
could get ugly.

Look in the archives of this list for my message of July 4, 2002,
with the subject "cvs repository confusion".  That addresses a
slightly different situation, but you should be able to adapt it
to your needs.  If you have further questions, feel free to ask.
