Hi John,

I had hoped from reading this page:

that we would be able to use cvs in compatibility mode via:

cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/gm2.git co -d gm2 master

but alas it just seems to hang.

I wonder if you might be able to use:

$ git clone git://
(as a replacement for cvs checkout etc)

and then

$ git pull
(as a replacement for cvs update)

I recognise that your scripts would need a few changes - to reflect
git usage and also the new directory structure.  I hope this is not
too much of an inconvenience.

Once done you should see an improvement in update times and huge
improvement between 'cvs diff' and 'git diff'.  From where I sit
this used to take 7 minutes in cvs and now it is almost immediate.
