Yeah, that about sums things up.

In answer to Josh, yes you can use it on top of a CVS repository though I don't know if all features work.  Not for lack of trying on SVK's part, but because CVS is just too dumb.  Getting CVS mirrored into SVK seems the biggest issue.  Its all very hairy and something I don't know too much about.  I hope you don't mind if I decline to cover it tonite.  Instead, I give you this URL.

Another option is to use VCP which does versioned copies between repositories plus SVN::Mirror and simply mirror the CVS repo into a Subversion repo and then let SVK talk to the SVN repo.

Duct tape upon glue upon duct tape.
