There was quite a bit of discussion on address@hidden about this
previously. But that was to move to bzr. Maybe given the discussion
among Emacs developers, people would want to consider git now.

We don't have the sysadmin resources to drive a change from CVS right
now (though it is something we would get to at some point), but if
others took up the cause and were able to help a lot with the work, we
would do our best to facilitate as it's something we'd love to see done
successfully this year.
