Software Heritage CVS Loader - call for public review

The mission of Software Heritage is to collect, preserve and share all
the publicly available source code (see for more information).

Thanks to Stefan Sperling (@stsp), Software Heritage now
has a CVS loader [1] [2]. It's been deployed in our staging
infrastructure [3]. We have ingested CVS origins that were listed from
sourceforge [3].

The latest deployed version of the loader is v0.1.1. Some bugs have been
ironed out on staging since its first deployment [4].

We now would like to have a round of public review on the actual data
output of the ingestion process, so we can either validate or ask for
some more updates, and then eventually deploy it in production.

We have some documentation on how CVS and the loader work [5]. That's
been maintained during the development process. We still need to update
that document to explicit in more details on how the cvs concepts map to
those of the Software Heritage archive.

Still, for now, please have a look at some of those origins loaded [4]
and let us know what you think!
