At 5GB+, (4.5GB for a copy of the cvs repo + 700MB for git) that's too
heavy for me.  And besides, it'd really be better under the Fedora
umbrella.  Seeing as how much more efficient the git protocol is,
if a few people switch to it from cvs, it'd actually decrease network
bandwidth requirements.

Is there anything I can do to revive this idea?
For example, I'd be happy to own and set up the tools/infrastructure
required to make it all work (I've already done this on three public servers).
All I'd need is an open git port and access to the config files.
