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.

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
the slightest clue if the distributed features proper are of any
