I am interested in converting the GNU Coding Standards CVS repository to
Git.  In order to achieve that I am using ‘reposurgeon’ and
‘cvs-fast-export’ which are the tools used and developped by Eric
S. Raymond for converting for example Groff and Emacs repositories.
this workflow is described more extensively here:


The repository is pretty small so it will not be too complicated to move
it to Git even if I am not an repository conversion expert.  The first
obvious question is to know if the current repository
commiters/maintainers are willing to accept this conversion?

If that is accepted, as first step I will need help with the commiter
map.  Here is the result from my first investigations:

3diff = Brian Youmans <address@hidden>
arnold = Arnold Robbins <address@hidden>
bkuhn = Bradley M. Kuhn <address@hidden>
brandon = Brandon Invergo <address@hidden>
brett = Brett Smith <address@hidden>
cvs-fast-export = cvs-fast-export <cvs-fast-export>
devnull = Joel N. Weber <address@hidden>
djm = David J. MacKenzie <address@hidden>
eggert = Paul Eggert <address@hidden> -0700
friedman = Noah Friedman <address@hidden> -0700
gnu = GNU <address@hidden>
hgayosso = Hugo Gayosso <address@hidden>
karl = Karl Berry <address@hidden> -0700
kwzh = Karl Heuer <address@hidden>
meyering = Jim Meyering <address@hidden>
orion =  Orion Buckminster Montoya <address@hidden>
paulv = Paul Visscher <address@hidden>
pot = Francesco Potortì <address@hidden>
rms = Richard M. Stallman <address@hidden> -0400
roland = Roland McGrath <address@hidden>
tower = Len Tower <address@hidden>
Additional informations regarding usual timezone and effective email
address are very welcomed.  I have put in place a Git repository for the
conversion process, in order to make it possible for every one to follow
and contribute:
