This is probably the wrong group for this question as posed; you may do better on the SVN groups. CVS2SVN is the popular tool. (http://cvs2svn.tigris.org/) But I'm guessing that you're asking here because you found that CVS2SVN is designed for straight cvs, not cvsNT. It will work with cvsNT with some caveats. When I tried it (it's been a few months), I found that it didn't handle the newer cvsNT features well. So if you've done renames for example, you're going to run into some issues. I also saw problems if a file is both binary and ascii (kb and kkv) in different revisions. For the former, we ended up not using rename due to some bugs when we tried it, so we only had a couple of those to deal with and we just manually handled them. For the latter, these almost always occur when someone wanted the file to be binary but forgot -kb on the add. For these we just put the old "format: binary" tag into the ,v file, and it usually worked okay. You may end up with other issues depending on which features you have used in your process. Or maybe you'll be lucky and someone has fixed up CVS2SVN to handle cvsNT. We didn't end up using SVN; the cost of the transition outweighed the benefits. However, you may want to look at the distributed systems like Mercurial (or bitkeeper, darcs, git, bazaar); these systems have a lot of promise. Again you'll need to do a little work to make the converter handle cvsNT. Which revision control system you should use depends on your needs and work flow. If you're considering changing systems, you probably should look at a couple different types to see which will best suit your company.
