It would have been lovly to use git instead of cvs.. presumably bazaar
(sp?), for example, could be used as well, I have not used that one
myself but from a description about how to get real work done with it
it didn't look bad.
I have converted some of our internal (at work) cvs repos to git,
keeping the cvs records (and even branches, in some cases). Some of
those repos were earlier converted from sccs, with records, so I have
git repos with checkins going back up to 16 years :-)

On the other hand I also just use git in combination with the existing
cvs repo for libcurl - I check out from cvs, then I make it a git
repo, which I can hack and clone to other machines so that when I make
a patch I can easily pull that over from e.g. aix to irix to see if it
works well -- when all's done I can then do a cvs diff and produce a
