I have a cvs repository that we use without any apparent issue. I was trying to do some evaluation of other SCMs out there (subversion and git), and I had problems trying to use their cvs import utilities on my cvs repo. They complained about corruption.

So, I tried running the validate-repo script on my cvs repo, and I was a bit dismayed to find that it reported the following:

Total Files: 57514 Corrupted files: 57484 Invalid revs: 0 Extra files: 6 Ignored Files: 24

What baffles me is that we use this cvs repository every day without noticing any problems.

I am soliciting any advice regarding this. Do I really have a problem? How can I find out more about what the corruption is?

Is your server CVS or CVSNT?

It's possible that the corruption may be, for example, a bad log message in an ancient revision of the file. I'm just guessing, though.

Try using the --verbose option to validate-repo and see if that helps shed some light on it.
