here's how to proceed:

0) browse around on the http tree (full read-only access) to look at the 

1) checkout your local tree only (not the entire tree yet as it is way 
too big!):


    svn co svn+ssh:// xfwm4

2) check your tree out and notice .cvsignore files etc.. these can be 
deleted safely, perhaps a good place to start with:

cd trunk
svn rm .cvsignore
svn status
svn ci
[type message]


3) check your branches and tags. Make sure they are named correclty etc. 
Remove nonsense branches (somehow happens in some branches like xfwm4)

4) notify me of problems and adjustments needed in case you think it 
would be best to automate problems. I can partially or even completely 
re-import entire modules again. ALthough that's not the nicest thing 
(you'd end up with twice the history, or I really have to nuke part of 
the svn date) it is possible.

5) ??? (svn-commits needs to be tested, but is installed)

6) profit!

I'm off to bed now. Please browse and try out little things first, for 
the simple reason that I can redo the exercise again NOW easily but not 
if people start to use it massively and decide after a week that the 
converting needs to be done again ;^). Also it looks bad if you break 
the SVN repo on the first day. very bad ;^)
