The source code repository for the findutils project is about to
migrate from CVS to git.

Up to now, the CVS repository has been the primary repository of the
findutils source code.  This is mirrored to a read-only git
repository.  This will now change.   We will hold the master sources
in git and provide read-only CVS access to the git repository.  The
CVS emulation offered by git is quite good and so apart from changes
in the URL you should see little practical difference if your use is

If you have checked-out code you will probably need to change the
CVS/E* files in your working copy, or just check out a fresh copy.

The source code access instructions on the Savannah repository for
findutils (http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/findutils/) will be
changed to describe how to access the source code.

As part of the migration, the git revision log will be updated to
attribute each change with the person listed in the ChangeLog as the
change's main author.  This should make "git log" on the repository
more useful than "cvs log" is on the current one.

I'd like to thank Jim, Eric, Bob and Ralf for their help, too.
