Yup, that time comes to most projects eventually.

I wonder how other projects using cvs solve this?

If you are just worried about renaming files and directories, you may
find DCVS by Kaz Kylheku
<address@hidden> to be a useful extension to CVS (Note: I have
not actually used DCVS myself.)

Hm... this does not seem stable enough for mission critical work.

Hmmm... I am not aware of anything particular on the roadmap for
supporting file structure reorganzation, but if you have suggestions or
code to contribute, we can discuss it on the address@hidden mailing
list (or address@hidden if you have patches to be considered).

We are php people. I am afraid we can't contribute in C.

Is it possible the repository to be touched carefully for file/directory renaming purpose? I read somewhere that the human readable form of the cvs repository is an advantage over subversion. What will happen if we simply rearrange the repository (the folders and ,v files there) and checkout again?
