 @section Importing a CVS repository
+Existing projects that migrate to Savannah may want their CVS
+repository to be transfered to their project's repository. Time is
+essential for such an operation since the project contributors want to
+work on the new repository on Savannah and stop using the old. When
+the author asks us, ask him to send the tarbal by mail or send a URL
+from which it can be downloaded.  Make an appointement with him and
+guarantee that the repository will be untared on subversions with 24
+hours maximum. The project contributor must first create a project on
+Savannah. When you have the tarball, untar it at
+/savannah/cvsroot/project/cvsroot/project. Make sure it does not
+contain a CVSROOT that would override the existing CVSROOT. If it does
+manually copy the history and val-tags files only. Make sure the
+imported repository is untared under
+/savannah/cvsroot/project/cvsroot/project/project and does not pollute
+the root of the repository.
