What is the procedure/steps for migrating a project from the CVS repository on a Windows XP server to a repository on a Linux server.  It would be helpful if the versioning history and log information can be retained during the migration.

I know one of the options we have is to do an CVS export from the Windows XP box and then do a CVS import of the contents to the Linux box. But in this method the versioning information is lost.

The CVS versions is the same on both the boxes.

    Simply move the entire $CVSROOT from Windows to the Linux server.
