I don't know of any cvs repository for zsh either (well, except my own,
which is only 3.0.x and littered with local experiments and selectively-
applied patches from zsh-workers).

You can make RCS'd sources accessible through CVS just by dropping the ,v
files into a directory tree under a new or existing CVS repository root;
but manipulating any RCS branch revisions probably won't work becaus CVS
uses a very particular branch numbering scheme.  To do it "right" you'd
have to check out each RCS revision and then import it into CVS, to make
a CVS revision history that matches the original RCS one.

You'd be better off to simply select a stable starting point, import that,
and begin to use CVS exclusively from there.
