There is no description because this is hackish ;-)

* create a project with SCM = CVS,
* copy your module/CVSROOT data to your /cvsroot/spamoracle/ using
* fix rights (you can ssh to the CVS host)
* enjoy using the forge.

This should also work with SVN (svnadmin load).

Since i am not sure of what i am saying, i propose to test this and
write a little documentation. Just create the project spamoracle asking
a CVS SCM and submit a bug to "Site admin" with the tarball of what you
want to inject. I will take care of doing it myself:
