Hello Matt,

Thanks, for your encouraging words.  I have sent some emails to the deity 
emaillist and Jason and since the beginning of december I did not get 1 
response (except the ones from today).  To tell you the truth, that (no 
response) frustrated me.  Of course debian went through a different time due 
to the hacked server.  I'm very glad to receive your reply!

Please, find the convert script in the attachment.

Tried it, I get:
richard:~/cvs> cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.debian.org:/cvs/deity co apt
Fatal error, aborting.
cvs_deity: no such user

I get the feeling that anonymous is mapped to a not existing user....  I have 
no problems accessing other cvs systems.  Any web frontend around to cvs?

Perhaps you can do a checkout of apt/doc, tarred it and have them sent to me 
as a start.  It would still be nice to access the apt repository though.
