Look at the newsgroup; there was a thread on
this a month or two ago.

You have a major problem: how to reduce ClearCase's extremely rich set
of metadata down into CVS's very limited set.  Also, obviously things
like directory renames, etc. cannot be easily handled.

However, the first step is you can use clearexport_ccase to dump all the
metadata associated with your elements into a text file which is quite
simple to read.  Note this file doesn't contain the actual version
contents; you still need a view for that.

This will give you a readily translatable format for all your
ClearCase-controlled data--now you just have to figure out how to map it
