I guess I should explain better.  I'm not certain this is the best way
to have things work, but it is at least what I'd prefer:

I want to move GnuTLS, which is maintained in CVS on right
now (i.e., not on savannah) to a local git repository on my laptop,
which I push to my server (, from which savannah and and others mirror it.

It is important that CVS read-only access still works.

I don't know what access method is the best to use on
Ssh seems complicated for anonymous (or?), so I suppose git's own
protocol or rsync is the way to go?

Is this possible?  Any help appreciated.
