Hi Simon,

At least Sylvain (Cc'd) and I can help you set it up.

If you'd merely like to mirror to a read-only Git
repository an existing CVS repo, I can help you start that
process right away.  With an existing project, this is
a good way to start.

Hmm.. from the way that's worded, it's ambiguous.
Is your project already on Savannah?  Or is this a new
(to Savannah) project that you'd like to set up there.

Do you already have a git repository?
Was it properly converted, mapping username->[name,email]
pairs in the logs, from some other VCS?

Do you think you'll want to provide or retain CVS-pserver
access to the Git repository?
Do you want the primary (writable) repo to use Git?
If you're interested in this,
would you like Savannah to continue to maintain a mirrored
(read-only) CVS repository, or would git-cvsserver's simulated
cvs server suffice?

I've Cc'd savannah-hackers-public, to keep them in the loop,
and besides, someone there might be able to help, too.
