Please DO NOT EVER post HTML to public mailing lists.

It all depends on the history of your repository, including how and when
it was created.

Why do you think you need to preserve "the history" of those files?

Why not start a new project with a canonical copy of those files?

(i.e. why not create a new module, check out an empty working directory
for them [cvs -f co newmodule], copy the files into the new working
directory and then add them all to the new repository with "cvs add"?)
