This is true.  If you made a change please go back in time and don't make
it :)  Actually I didn't see any commits go through so I think we're
golden.  The puppet system is now on puppet!  Our repos are all in one git
repo (minus private, still working on that).

Here's how to use it:

Old                              | New
cvs -d /cvs/puppet co manifests  | git clone /git/puppet
cvs -d /cvs/puppet co configs    | git clone /git/puppet
cvs commit                       | git commit
make install                     | git push

That should be enough to get you by.  I've got a syntax check on post
commit and it will let you know when you've broken something.  I'm going
to try to get this into a pre-commit but there are some speed issues.

You'll also note that make install has been replaced by git push.  This is
an instant install and is much faster.  I'm going to work on the Makefiles
but make push should still work and I am going to try to get a "make test"
back to a normal working order.

The cvs repos have been moved to /cvs/puppet.disabled/

Once this move has proved working fine I'll start working on some cleanup.
I'm also working on a way to do test runs of puppet before you push on the
actual machines in question.  This is still fuzzy in my brain but I'm
pretty sure its possible.
