Not a wizard (yet) but I need to do this for MayaVi and have looked at
a few options.
1. You can move the RCS files inside Chaco's CVS repository into the
Scipy directory. This is discussed in the cvs info pages inside
starting a new project -> setting up the files -> from other revision
I think this is a decent option. This option requires direct access
to the CVS rep. and needs to be done with some care. I'd recommend a
backup of CVS before you begin.
2. The second option is to do add/removes which will destroy your
history when the file is inside scipy and all the old files in chaco
will be in the attic. Pain.
I think option 1 is the best bet since you have access to the CVS
