Oh. Thank you. I'm very rare use svn from command-line. On windows I
like to use TortoiseCVS/SVN.

Yes. Please, give me short receipe (config file) how to convert cvs->bzr 
or svn->bzr
(because I'm already have svn repo converted from cvs).

Because after creating svn.dump I discover that svn2bzr does not work.
It have minor windows bug, but anyway svn2bzr fails when reading
revisions from dump.
