cvs-fast-export 1.10

Fri, 28/03/2014 - 9:50am
cvs-fast-export analyzes a collection of RCS files in a CVS repository (or outside of one) and, when possible, emits an equivalent history in the form of a fast-import stream. Not all possible histories can be rendered this way; the program tries to emit useful warnings when it can't. The program can also produce a visualization of the resulting commit DAG in the DOT format handled by the graphviz suite. The package also includes cvssync, a tool for mirroring masters from remote CVS hosts.

Release Notes: This release prepends CVS default ignores to converted .cvsignores and generates a .gitignore containing default CVS ignores when necessary.
