Is it necessary to have access to the CVS server to do the conversion
from CVS to Git? Should the different translators go into different

I had a look, and I couldn't find any really obvious things that needs
fixing. Well, except for a few spelling errors in the source comments.
(e.g. "who's" instead of "whose")

Besides that:

      /* Try to avoid showing non-hurd processes if this isn't a native-booted
         hurd system (because there would be lots of them).  Here we use a
         simple heuristic: Is the 5th process a hurd process (1-4 are
         typically: proc server, init, kernel, boot default pager (maybe); the
         last two are know not to be hurd processes)?  */

            /* Something is fucked, we can't get the state bits for PS.
               Default to showing everything.  */

But I have no idea how to fix those things.
