It's on my list (SVNSync) as well as svn2cvs.  Progress is slow,
but moving forward.

For what it's worth, there is an effort underway to rewrite the CVSup client in C. In fact, there were TWO efforts underway, one in C++ and one in C. The C effort was farther along, so I gave up on the C++ rewrite once I found out about the other one.

I think the goal is to have a "base-system-able" CVSup client
available (at least for testing) by the time FreeBSD 5.3 is
released.  Perhaps sooner, if someone was willing to pay to
underwrite the coding effort.  By "base-system-able", I just
mean that it will require only C, and it will have a BSD license.
I think this is just the client though.  People running a CVSup
server might still need the modula-3 compiler.

The main reason I'm mentioning this is that I wouldn't want a
THIRD rewrite to start up at this point!

[I'd also say that I'm also very interested in subversion, and I
hope to start playing around with it soon, but I would not commit
any huge repository to it just yet...]
