I'm really sorry, but my router decided to cross his arms as soon as I
boarded my plane for vacation :-)

I will try to establish a secondary source to prevent this hassle.

There is no relation between them, except the fact that both tools are
able to trasmigrate a CVS repos into a darcs one. tailor.py goes even
further being able to do the same slurping a SVN source, going the
other way, and going on from where it left last time extracting more
recent upstream changesets.

    Isaac> Does this do two-way sync between darcs and cvs?

It should by intention, minus bugs :)
