trying to port my cvs repo to svn and using cvs2svn.

so i run cvs2svn -s new-svn-repos old-cvs-repos and here is the end of the output.

Code:

ERROR: It is not clear how the following symbols should be converted.
Use --force-tag, --force-branch and/or --exclude to resolve the ambiguity.
    'juniper' is a tag in 2 files, a branch in 63 files and has commits in 63 files


"juniper" is what i set to be the author of my projects in the old cvs repo (using the command

cvs import -m "initial import into CVS" myproj juniper start

)

so, i tried the suggestions the error gave. Using the --exclude command I get

Code:

Checking for blocked exclusions...
ERROR: The branch 'juniper' cannot be excluded because the following symbols depend on it:
    'start'


--force-tag gives

Code:

ERROR: The following branches cannot be forced to be tags because they have commits:
    'juniper'


finally, i tried --force-branch

and it works. I do, however, get another problem. all my projects are now under repos/branches/juniper (all listed separately). also, i checked out a project and it seems that all revision history is lost - svn log outputs

Code:

This commit was manufactured by cvs2svn to create branch 'juniper'.

Initial revision


this is very disappointing as I have, possibly, the simplest repository.
