I tried to simply copy a module from one of my repos into another one,
hoping that it would not cause trouble, like this:
cp /repos/old/CVSROOT/module /repos/new/CVSROOT
As a result I was able to check out my module using Repo2.
It worked... So far so good...
But when I tried to convert Repo2 to mercurial the convert operation
wouldn't do anything, just stop witout comment. Dangling somewhere...
So, I guess, simply copying a module from Repo1 to Repo2 is ILLEGAL.
I thought that it might be connected to the val-tags file in
/repos/new/CVSROOT/CVSROOT, which is why I copied a missing tag from
old module into there. But to no avail. Conversion would still stop for
So I ask myself. Am I totally messing up the CVS repo itself with my
simple drag and drop here? (Though I can't imagine, since there is not
much more in /repos/new/CVSROOT/CVSROOT to consider!)
