Can we have a quick description of the state of the conversion business?
IIUC we now have a conversion that preserves the history, branches, and
tags from the CVS repository, plus adds the merge info coming from the
Arch (via the git) repository (and half-manually stuffed into the git
repository, thanks to Andreas), plus adds the rename info
guessed/inferred by git itself.

And that conversion can be done "easily" but cannot be updated later on
to incorporate changes in the CVS repository, forcing us into a "flag
day" scenario.


Also, what's the status of the Savannah hosting?  Looking at
http://savannah.gnu.org/support/index.php?106612, it's not clear whether
"bzr+ssh" access is available, and whether emacs-commit is working.
Do we have a test branch setup there?  Anything else that might be
[ BTW ]

I think I'd prefer 2.  It should be a time where the release branch
(currently "trunk") doesn't see too much activity, which would help.
