          Reporter: tk at giga.or.at

            Status: UNCONFIRMED

         Component: convert
           Product: Mercurial

I've tried converting the pkgsrc-wip repository directly from CVS to mercurial
using 'hg convert' from mercurial 3.4.1.

It stopped (after processing quite a number of changesets) with:
43913 s/netbsd.org/NetBSD.org/
cvs server: cvs checkout: `wip/gcl/Makefile' is no longer in the repository

abort: malformed response from CVS

If you want to try, you can get the repository with rsync:

rsync -Dlrt --del rsync://pkgsrc-wip.cvs.sourceforge.net/cvsroot/pkgsrc-wip/ .

In case it matters, the cvs version installed is:

Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.12.13 (client/server)
with CVSACL Patch 1.2.5 (cvsacl.sourceforge.net)
