You mean using nongnu.org's git support?  And the cvsserver 
emulation, so that CVS people can still access it via CVS?  That's an 
option, but I do not know if nongnu.org has enabled cvsserver emulation.

And I'm not a fan of _forcing_ people to switch to another SCM.  You can 
use git (and even cvsimport yourself, should the public git mirrors lag), 
and even svn, as pbrook showed, even if the official upstream stays CVS.
