Hi Todd,

In my description I used paths which would be used with -d option on checkout.

<SNIP establishment that we are talking about data directories and not the control dir.>
Well, of course I wanted to keep the HISTORY! ;)

{I am almost betting you are going to send another message indicating you were
talking more about $CVSROOT/MyVersionControlledDataDirectory instead of the
$CVSROOT/CVSROOT/module module name control file, but I am going to make you
send it, i.e., if you meant something other than $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/module you
should have not have abstracted as much.}
Well, I meant of course the $CVSROOT/MyVersionControlledDataDirectory. The module named module was a bad choice for this example, I see... Well, and here it is, my other message you made me send... ;)

In this case, doing a cp of the data should work with out problem, as this is just a special case of "Backing up a repository"[1].

did your convert work BEFORE you did the copy?
Have you asked the mercurial convert program author for help?
Not yet, at first wanted to make sure that I am not messing up my CVS repo by doing so, before I contact the convert author.

You might be able to get a little more information if you turn some debugging on... I suggest reading the docs about the mercurial convert program and see if it has some debugging or verbose flags you can set, and you could probably set the cvs option for tracing[2] or set $CVS_CLIENT_LOG [3] to see if it mercurial is getting data by using cvs (you might have to set tracing in the cvsrc file).
