If you have a complete CVS mirror repo (I'm using cvsup-mirror from ports),
can you make your own seeds using cvs2svn to create local read-only SVN
repos, then begin using svnsync from the master/mirror SVN servers?

I'm looking to avoid downloading what I believe will be large seed files.

I guess you'd need to convert src, ports, docs, www as different SVN repos?

Are there any docs on how it was done for FreeBSD?
