cvs-importer automates the task of importing all past versions of an existing project into CVS or Subversion, including automatically removing generated files, creating .cvsignore files/svn:ignore properties, and tagging each version. Thus, you can gain some of the advantages of scm for the older versions that weren't actually developed in cvs/svn, by having all the changes in the history.

Release Notes: New support for subversion, a new test suite, ability to handle -rc version strings, recognizing the alternate configure.ac spelling for newer autoconf versions, fixing .cvsignore generation in subdirs, and changing the standard behavior to not create a global cvsignore file.
Release Notes: This release fixes handling of relative filename commandline arguments.
Release Notes: Remembering to note dependancy on atool and file, allowing multiple dirs and/or files to be specified (and if none are, use the current dir), ceasing to print the 'removing generated/excluded ...' message for empty lists, and a fix for the problem of binary files already in the first version of a project not being imported as binary.
