make a copy of your cvs repository (not a checkout, but a copy)

cp cvsroot tmpdir

checkout the copy, cd into the checkout

TZ=UTC cvsps -u -A -q > ../cvsps.dump
cd ..
TZ=UTC hg-cvs-import cvsroot cvsmodule hg-rep mapfile < cvsps.dump

module is the cvs module (ie cvs checkout module)

mapfile should be empty the first time the import is run. It records a mapping of hg csets to cvsps commits.

As your cvs repo updates, you can run cvsps again and then run the importer again to update. As long as you use the same mapfile, it will pick up where it left off last time.
