Shouldn't need to break it up.

If the history file (or another single file) is enough:

	Starthist=`ls -l $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/history`

	while [ "$Starthist" != "$curhist" ]
		rsync .....
		curhist=`ls -l $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/history`

If not you can test the directory.
	touch $TMPFILE.test

	until diff -q $TMPFILE.start $TMPFILE.test >/dev/null
		rsync .....
	rm -f $TMPFILE.start $TMPFILE.test
