downloadable CVS archives

As part of an upcoming contract job I'll need to convert a CVS 
repository to Perforce. This is not something I've done before. I'd like 
to practice with the CVS converter that comes with Perforce before 
flying out there to avoid unpleasant surprises while the clock is 
ticking. So does anyone know of a place I can download the CVS archives 
of a real (presumably open source) application? Note, this is not just 
the regular CVS access that most open-source projects offer - I need the 
actual archive files with full version history. Ideas?

Thanks,
Henry T

There's a well-known free software application called the Linux kernel. It
shed its proprietary SCM system called Bitkeeper this year, but the old
CVS archives that were made available for use by the free software addicts
still exist here:

 * ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/bkcvs/

I'm sure it exists as an (more useful) rsync source, too, somewhere.
