Hi all,

I've experimented a bit more with converting the auctex CVS repository
to git, and it seems to work out fine.  The history looks good and
complete, and the files in a CVS checkout equal the files in a git
working copy, except that $Id$ strings somehow got mangled.  In CVS, you

  $Id: preview.el,v 1.286 2011/01/23 18:53:55 angeli Exp $

whereas in a git WC you have

  $Id: preview.el,v 1.286 2011-01-23 18:53:55 angeli Exp $

Not much of an issue.  I think we should get rid of these Id expansion
thingies because they don't make much sense in a dVCS.

Another thing is that there are still a few committers I couldn't
identify.  Basically, every committer listed on the savannah project
page is listed with his full name and email address, but I don't have
information about these guys:

    Author: alanshutko <alanshutko>
    Author: amanda <amanda>
    Author: arafune <arafune>
    Author: dakas <dakas>
    Author: dominik <dominik>
    Author: krab <krab>
    Author: kurt <kurt>
    Author: nabe <nabe>
    Author: nixsf <nixsf>
    Author: uid66762 <uid66762>
    Author: uid66917 <uid66917>
    Author: uid67813 <uid67813>
    Author: uid69014 <uid69014>

If anyone knows one of them, please drop me a mail.

You can play around with the converted git repository.

  $ git clone

If you find some problem, please report back.

If nobody objects or finds an issue, I'm planning to do the switch to
git on savannah anytime soon.
