Are they truly independent? Easy. Make sure everybody has his stuff checked
in. Make a backup. Copy cvs1 to cvs2. Change (x)inetd if you run pserver.
Send advertisement about the new $CVSROOT to whom is concerned. Have them
check out a new sandbox.

If they are not truly independent (ie both repo's have a module with the
same name) you might want to check which repo is the better... and then do
the copy stuff.
