cvs-importer / svn-importer

cvs-importer automates the task of importing all past versions of an existing project into CVS or Subversion, including automatically removing generated files, creating .cvsignore files/svn:ignore properties, and tagging each version. Thus, you can gain some of the advantages of scm for the older versions that weren't actually developed in cvs/svn, by having all the changes in the history.
