Let's not plan for having cvs and svn writable repositories in  
parallel - that would create an administrative nightmare. Once the  
tests complete, there'll be a clean cut-over.

What Jason suggested is to try and continue a read-only (anonymous)  
cvs repository, updated from the svn repository that the developers  
use, aside from an anonymous svn repository mirroring the writable  
one. This would primarily be for maintaining working URLs for those  
folks who http-linked into the anonymous cvs repository. What I added  
earlier is that even if that fails to be feasible, you can achieve  
the goal using some small CGI script and apache redirect to map CVS- 
style links to the anonymous svn repository.
