I've been experimenting importing the Emacs CVS repository into Bazaar.
In fact, I am currently using Bazaar's cvsps-import plugin to import the
entire CVS repository.  So far the process has taken about a week on the
(not very impressive) hardware I have available.

I've actually been working on this as a side project for about a month
and I have tried several different import methods, including a previous
attempt at using cvsps-import.  My last try was unsuccessful, but I
think I have worked out the problems.  That's encouraging, because
cvsps-import is incremental and would allow people to try bzr in the
same way that they can try the unofficial git repository.  I played
around for some time with a repository that was *nearly* complete and it
weighed in at around 450 M (with all branches).

My original plan was to pipe up on the lists *after* I had something
that I knew worked, but I'm pretty close, and I thought I might save
someone the trouble of duplicating my efforts.
