I have no technical points, other than a hearty approval of this move.

git is stable, well used, and far more efficient than equivalent
source control versions.  There are many reasons, which I won't go
into here (but a quick search on the net will tell you why).

Also there are many, many transition guides for CVS users, one example
of which is here:


That's not definitive, but an example.

Anyway I look forward to the transition.  And thanks for doing this.
