    Is there a summary of your goals somewhere? I'm wondering whether the main point is to convert the perl repo, or to produce a general p4->git tool and the perl repo is just a test case.

    • Originally I was focused entirely on the Perl repository conversion. However I decided for this re-write to keep the pure perforce export stuff separate from subsequent Perl-specific rewriting.

      So, the tool should end up generally useful for other people - but doesn't try to do anything with various Perforce features like client specs (important for some people) and its branch auto-detection and creation algorithm may not be appropriate for all repository layouts.
