Converting Cvs To Git

This is how the condor-web CVS repository was converted to Git. It may be of use in converting any other lingering CVS repositories.

# Get cvs-fast-export
tar xzf cvs-fast-export-1.10.tar.gz
pushd cvs-fast-export-1.10

# Generate list of users
find /p/condor/repository/HTML/condor-web -name '*,v' -type f -print0 | xargs -0 egrep '^date.*author' | awk '{print $4}' | awk -F';' '{print $1}' | sort | uniq | xargs -n1 perl -e 'print($ARGV[0]," = ",(getpwnam($ARGV[0]))[6]," <$ARGV[0]\> America/Chicago\n")' > authormap
# Hand edit author map.  Look for " =  <" to find entires that couldn't be resolved.  Fill them in or delete them.

# Generate Git fast export file
find /p/condor/repository/HTML/condor-web/ -name '*,v' -print | cvs-fast-export-1.10/cvs-fast-export -A authormap > web-fast-export

# Create new repository
mkdir condor-web
cd condor-web
git init
cat ../web-fast-export | git fast-import
git checkout
