Hi jbj, Anders. sorry for the late response.

These days i have  two rpm5 git repo (cvsps/cvsimport -> git
repository) : one on git hub and another (private) on unfundle
(https://rpm5.unfuddle.com) - if you have an account there i can do
you the necessary access permission, naturally.

The rpm5 (and popt) github repo is pubblic. Anders here is your last
commit on the 5.4 branch

I do not know how to evaluate the right adhesion of the story in the
conversion, and perhaps the same conversion is not perfect (for
example,. Gitignore may be incorrect, scored on popt recently). In
general it seems that the best tool for this is cvs2git rather than
cvsps - and cvsimport - I had used in the past (I think also Fedora
has used cvs2git/cvs2svn). But it is one-way not incremental.

But the true questions is : Is  there  still interest?

I know git very well (and i also follow the git development for
lazyness) and so I had noticed this email by Eric S. Raymond
http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/211933 about
cvsps, that look interesting.

So it's not that nobody wanted to do the job. It was only a matter of
stimuli, interest. And time of course.

Opinions ?

Best Regards

I'm sorry for not having completed the job at the best. For now almost.
