I have a whole bunch of source code that I have been committing to

use "cvs -d <second_repo> import", but I'm concerned about losing
a lot of valuable revision history when I do this.  Is there a way
to avoid this information loss?

The history of the file "" that you have been working on is in a file in the original repository. Do a "cvs status" and look on the line "Repository revision:". It has the name of the repository file. It ends in the string "/,v".

Simply copy the,v file from the original repository into the correct place in the new repository.
