Maintaining an accurate cvs->git mirror is not trivial (I know, from
experience with the full repositories of coreutils, emacs, libc, and a
few more).  If you can do it well and keep it accurate, then it'd make
a fine and very welcome service.

I've found that the initial conversion works best with cvsparse.
It's _much_ more efficient than git-cvsimport, and more reliable, too.
