from CVS. It seems to work fairly well. If you want more info on
setting up tailor, let me know and I can send you my config file
(really simple, actually).

Pavel Roskin posted a link yesterday to his git mirror of the GRUB CVS.
( That would be another option, and I
need to consider whether I should mirror directly from CVS or via the
git mirror. Interfacing bzr to git is a more direct mapping since they
both have the concept of changesets (revisions of the entire
repository). There is a bzr-git tool (
that is supposed to integrate with git in a really slick way. I might
go straight to CVS, though, since the git repository is just a mirror

It helps you manage sets of patches against an upstream branch of a
