Import from cvs is failing

Asked by Jeff Johnson

Hi --

I've just started receiving (or noticing) import failure msgs like here

While the ability to import cvs -> bar isn't critically important,
I would like to know whether there is something that can
be done to resolve the issue.

Is the import from cvs -> bar fixable?

Is there snaything that I should do (in cvs) to help work around
whatever issue is causing the failure?

Thanks for help!

I'm not sure why it ever failed. It's working fine for me locally, so I started it up again. Let's see if this gets it going again.

Note that the CVS repository goes back more than 15y
and there may be some (insoluble without a time machine ;-) issues.

If there's anything that needs doing in CVS to make
the import from CVS -> BZR, please feel free to ask.

While I'm not interested in using BZR per-se, having
a secondary VCS system in place for CVS is quite useful
(yes we have off-site backups in place too ;-)

Hmmm ... I've got 2 e-mail notices of import failure and the only
exit from this input screen is
    This solved my problem
which may not be the case.

Ah there's the UI: I still breed an answer. Sorry for the inline n00b noise.

Hi Jeff,

this one's all a bit funky.
I've created the linked bug as a starter to help track a fix. There doesn't appear to be anything directly obvious ops-wise broken at least.
