Excellent news! FWIW the PostgreSQL team have been trying to switch to 
git for the past month, and in the process have involved the cvs2git 
maintainers and had some fixes committed over the past few weeks to 
improve the migration process (note that they have also suffered from 
having to hand-tweak the repository to fix various bugs in CVS).

The thread about the entire process is very long, but for those 
interested the latest summary is here:
