git-clone uses curl and ends up saying:
  Cannot get remote repository information.
  Perhaps git-update-server-info needs to be run there?

It is updated from cvs every 15 minutes, but due to the way cvsps
works, it may take two iterations for a change in cvs to propagate
into the git tree.

That's still great. I wonder how you did this because I already tried several times to import the various autotools with git- cvsimport and it always miserably failed (for various reasons, but mainly because cvsps is a really dirty hack and its code has lots of bugs, some of which I had to fix so that it eventually finishes but the resulting Git repository had lots of corrupted commits).
