This makes it so that "git cvs" will DTRT (from top of tree). - bstpierre Do you know an easy way a cloned git repo can fetch from the CVS repository on its own?

- skiphoppy 1 for concise answer, usable to us. - Thorbjrn Ravn Andersen One thing is a little unclear about the instructions: Make sure you're on your master branch so that the changes can be merged (or rebased) into your local/topic branches.
