The current version of cvs2svn fails on Tiger with the error message
ERROR: your installation of Python does not contain a suitable DBM module -- cvs2svn cannot continue. See http://python.org/doc/current/lib/module-anydbm.html to solve.
That’s because there’s no suitable db module in Apple’s python install. However, there is an easy solution that works with the python 2.3 supplied by Apple:
install Berkeley db42 via fink (or however you like)
download bsddb3 from http://pybsddb.sourceforge.net
unpack and perform inside the unpacked directory
python setup.py build sudo python setup.py install
This should do the job.
