I started the cvs2git script yesterday and it completed overnight. The
results look fine, here is an example commit log from one of the
recent CVS commits:
Add link to non official images for some more ports
CVS version numbers
english/ports/index.wml: 1.133 -> 1.134
If people want to change how the CVS part looks that should be easy by
customising the sed commands in the script.
I didn't get the authors file before starting the script though, so it
doesn't have full author names in the commit meta-data.
I think the remaining things to add to the script are:
The authors file.
Any tweaks needed to the CVS version numbers part of the commit logs.
After the repo has been converted, use the cvs-revisions file to add a
git commit automatically rewriting all the translation-check headers
to the git-based system Laura proposed.
