It sometimes worries me how much I still depend on CVS.

I am trying out a move to mercurial for all the same reasons as Mozilla,
and had difficulty finding a CVS import that worked. This is my first
experience with python, so when none of the existing translators worked
for me I was a bit worried. (Fortunately python is very easy to learn.)

I couldn't get cvsps to work at all, and the problem was not immediately
easy to work around. I managed to get cvs20hg to work (minus the branch
support) after hacking it somewhat.

Is there a specific location to discuss CVS sync projects/contribute
