  Since the same tool (ViewVC) is used both for CVS and Subversion
repositories, and it operates on repository names, a Subversion
repository can be masked by a CVS repository of the same name.  In olden
times, every non-CVS repository had to be created by hand, because the
forge software didn't handle them, so a lot of projects got a CVS
repository even if they never actually used it; so there were lots of
empty CVS repositories, potentially masking Subversion ones.

  I removed those empties, so that problem shouldn't happen anymore.
(I'm offline as I write this email though, so I can't check for the
specific instances you wrote about.)
