Unfortunately, no.

I converted with cvs2svn the existing cvs repo in cvs.debian.org. I
wanted to just add the missing pieces from arch. But I could not get
it to work properly. Then I tried to import the whole thing from arch
and it exploded in different ways.

Here's the latest config I used and I've have found on my disk.
And I'm not yet sure that the current arch repo with the imported cvs
history contains all cvs branches and tags...

--- X< --- [ dpkg.project ] ---
verbose = True

source = tla:source
target = svn:target
start-revision = INITIAL
root-directory = /tmp/dpkg-tmp
state-file = tailor.state
subdir = src

repository = scott@netsplit.com--2004
module = dpkg--cvs--0

repository = file:///tmp/dpkg-from-tla
module = dpkg
--- X< --- [ dpkg.project ] ---
