Review Request: cvs2svn

cvs2svn is a Python script that converts a CVS repository to a
Subversion repository. It is designed for one-time conversions, not for
repeated synchronizations between CVS and Subversion.
NB: License says "BSD" because it's the same license and subversion, and the core subversion package says the license is "BSD" (even though it's a modified BSD).
Should this not be Development/Tools rather than Languages?
Could you also clarify if the licence for this software is modified BSD or
straight BSD please?
You're right, I missed the Group bit -- will modify accordingly.
I guess I could change the license to "Modified BSD", even though the
modification is small:
* 3. The end-user documentation included with the redistribution, if
* any, must include the following acknowledgment: "This product includes
* software developed by CollabNet (http://www.Collab.Net/)."
* Alternately, this acknowledgment may appear in the software itself, if
* and wherever such third-party acknowledgments normally appear.
It's somewhere between the original BSD and current BSD -- the dreaded
"advertise clause" is required, but only in documentation, so it's not a big
deal. Like I said, the subversion package in core lists the license as "BSD", so
I figure it's safe to leave it as just "BSD" for this one as well.

Builds without a hitch. rpmlint is happy, mock is happy. The licence does seem
correct as BSD.
Wow, this is the fastest package review I've had in my life. :) Thanks, Paul!
