mmh... I am not very happy with the way how this was solved, because:

* afais, the complete history of changes was lost in the SVN reimport

* the svn repository contains lots of autogenerated files (e.g. ChangeLog,
  Makefile.in, configure, ...) which should not be handled by SCM systems

* I do not think that Subversion is so much better than CVS that a change
  is required. Changeset support or support of distributed development
  would be arguments convincing me but SVN does not offer these features.

* what's wrong with current hosting at savannah? Ok, they are excessively
  paranoid which makes things like file uploads nearly impossibly. But I
  still have hope that it will be fixed.

First two points can be perhaps solved by converting the CVS tree but I
never did such a conversion. As already mentioned, I do not see the
necessity of such a step.
