Great, thank you!

Anyone know how we typically get these on Savannah (so we can test with
Loggerhead too)?  Do we just file a ticket?

Well, I think the most useful thing we can do is all agree right now on
which repository we're testing, so no one wastes time.

As of right now, your repositories (the ones you just posted) are the
most recent ones -- you converted with a very recent bzr fastimport that
included Max's recent patches, and presumably you converted *from* a
very recent git repository that in turn is from recent CVS sources.

>From this point forward, if you and Andreas can coordinate and post
exactly one conversion at a time, that would help keep the chaos level
down, I think.  More conversions is not better at this stage -- we
should be aiming for canonicality.  (Does that sound right?)

So, right now I'm downloading 


and I will test that.  I encourage everyone else to do the same, and to
report bugs in that conversion and no other.  Andreas, your conversion
method is now exactly the same as Jason's, right?  That is, you're both
using the lastest bzr fastimport on the latest Git repos?

If we find no problems with this conversion, then hopefully it will be
pretty quick for Andreas to go from latest CVS->Git->Bzr, so we can do
the real conversion and finally finish this switchover.

You seem to have fixed it, congrats!
