   After a cursory examination, it looks fine:
     - you mapped all user names to Real Name <email>
     - I see some tags, so I presume all are preserved

Not many tags, and not a great bunch of people who commited things so
it was quite simple.

   However, do note that the tags are not signed.  You may want to
   replace those simple, unsigned tags with gpg-signed ones.  That
   makes it so tools like "git describe SHA" are more useful: without
   signed tags, everyone have to know/remember to use some option to
   tell it to check for unsigned tags to make it useful.

I was contemplating of adding "proper" tags (miscfiles-x_y kinda deal)
for each release of miscfiles; and rename the old tags to something
like cvs/tag-name.  What do you think?

   If you're interested, let me know and I'll dig up my notes.  I've
   done it a few times before, and getting it right (making
   new-sig-tag date match that of each old one) was not trivial.

Please do, it would be very helpful.
