Well, technically speaking, you should simply be able to just copy the
$CVSROOT/<project> directory onto the Mozdev CVSROOT, and everything
should work from there. I've done this on a number of occasions, but it
assumes you have access to the new CVS server to place the directory in
So, at this point its more of a policy or system-administrative
limitation rather than a technical one.
I'm curious about this as well because I'd like to import my project's
CVS repositories into mozdev as well.
