I personally use git to keep my local GDB work, I've just imported
CVS tip, and then go "cvs up + git commit" from time to time. It works
relatively well (*).
As for full CVS->git conversion, I've tried then GDB's repo size
and my ISP conspired to make it not happen. I've rsynced GDB repo now,
and plan to try again some time.
(*) The most important properties of git for me (i)
ability to revise a patch in a middle of a series and (ii) ability
to format all patches as emails and put it on IMAP server. I have not
