Importing from CVS into Git
To setup a new Git repository imported from CVS, make sure you have a $CVSROOT parameter initialized in your session :
and run the following command:
$ git cvsimport -v -d $CVSROOT -C git-dir-to-create -r cvs cvs-module-to-checkout
Note: cvsimport uses the cvs command. If you do not have cvs installed, the import will not be successful. (you can try to use the -k option : see manual page)
You can use this from linux, or windows (from cygwin).
