We converted Guile's CVS repo (where there were a number of branches,
several of which were active) to Git several months ago.  The first
attempt used `git-cvsimport' and was a failure, because this tool
doesn't correctly handle branches (basically, HEAD was correct, but the
branches were broken).  We ended up using `cvs2svn', which turned out to
be the right solution.  Details and pointers in this thread:
