I don't know about the CVS archive I'm afraid but I'm
curious what you
mean with converting it in a better way to mercurial. What is missing
in the current one?
Well for me one of the most useful commands is
hg log -G
Which gives me a graphic idea about the history of the repository. (I
am also a fan of named branches, but this is a different topic). What I
find confusing though is to see several «branches» in a repo which do
not correspond really to branches.
To illustrate my point
hg log -G | grep 9624523604c5
hg log | grep 9624523604c5
And you will see something very odd. I presume this was generated by the
conversion from CVS to mercurial and that is why I wanted to know with
which tools the conversation was done, and where to find the original
I hoped to have a backup but I don't.
