I would expect that the switch to subversion itself takes only little time,
and requires only little adjustment to existing infrastructure bits (automated
checkouts and updates, checkin notifications, etc.).
What takes a bit longer is the preparation of the move (but that can be done
while a new release is still prepared from CVS), as well as some subsequent
cleanup (directory reorganization, etc.) following the move.

So, I don't see any need to keep two repositories in parallel, really.

I'd be curious to know how easy a switch from CVS to SVN with the current
boost repository would be. Douglas, have you attempted to run cvs2svn or
similar on the repository ?
How much work is needed before the transfer could happen ?
