Subject Re: Moving CVS to SVN - multiple repositories with different permissions
Date Tue, 14 Nov 2017 15:07:31 GMT

Next issue is about Python:
I have used Python in conjunction with WinCVS before (never programmed
Python myself) and I did so by installing from the ActiveState Python
Now I see that ActiveState only offers the x64 version of the
installer, whereas has both.

Can cvs2svn use either one (32 or 64 bit)?
And is any of them to be preferred (ActiveState or, 32 or
64 bit)?

Furthermore the cvs2svn docs say:
- Python 2, version 2.4 or later. See (cvs2svn
does not work with Python 3.x.)
- A compatible database library, usually gdbm, and the corresponding
Python bindings. Neither dumbdbm nor standard dbm is sufficient.

Is there any way to find out if the needed database library is
included or not? And if not how does one go about getting it?

I have to install all tools on a "clean" Windows 2016 server x64
machine for the conversion.

Oh! That brings up yet another point:
On Windows Server 2016 it seems like Microsoft has included their web
server (IIS), but I think that Apache is needed for SVN.
How can one deal with that?
Or is SVN a server all by itself?
