I have been using the following script to maintain a mirror of Grub's
CVS repository. The first time it's run it creates a git repository in
'upstream'; subsequent runs will import any new commits since the last

        set -e
        export CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/grub

        git-cvsimport -k -v -i -C upstream grub2

The full history, including branches, is imported. The 'upstream'
directory ends up being 6.3 MiB, which includes a checkout of the
'origin' branch.
