#127720 Switching a project from CVS to Subversion

I have a project I created here some time back, and have not yet put any files in the CVS repo. Since initially registering it, I've become more fond of Subversion. I was wondering if there was a way to "convert" my project to use svn rather than CVS? As I mentioned, there are no files currently in the repo, so there would be no actual data to import/convert.

Thank you!

    Greetings,

    To enable SVN in your project, go to your project summary page (https://sourceforge.net/projects/<project_UNIX_name>), mouse over the Admin tab and scroll down until you see the Subversion option. Select that. On the subsequent page, click the check-box to enable SVN and select Update. You'll be set!
