  • There are at least three functional ways to get from CVS to git listed on the Interfaces, Front-ends And Tools page on the git wiki [git.or.cz].

    If you want to be able to commit back to cvs, you probably want to go the git-cvsimport / git-cvsexportcommit route.

    • Thanks. I'll definitely look more into it.

      I came into work this morning to discover our CVS server has a kernel panic; one of the only two guys who can fix it didn't arrive till just now, so at the moment I can't really use much of anything. :) Actually I can continue to commit to my SVK repository; just can't get all the updates that happened after I went home on Friday and over the weekend.

    • Thanks again. A little bit of reading, study, and practice, and now I see that git does in fact handle my gripe above quite nicely. Score 1 for git, 0 for svk, which disappoints me, because to be honest I'm biased in favor of svk. :)

      I love that with git I can take a long time specifically marking what I actually want to commit and that when I commit, unless I make an unconscious habit of using the -a option, I'll just commit the things I marked rather than possibly screwing up and committing everything!
