Wouldn't it be possible to keep the old archive around read-only for a
limited time (except for the downtime this weekend, off course), so that
unfulfilled commits was not completely lost. I believe (but have not
tested) that it is possible to generate a cvs diff against a read-only

The reason I suggest this is to both make the switch doable and at the
same time respect developers not checking mail the next couple of days.
