I've done a lot of SVN to CVS imports, but nothing from CVS..
You could have a loot at the git-cvs tagged questions at StackOverflow:
One answer that caught my eye was this one:
"git cvsimport" has many known bugs and should not be considered a reliable
> means of converting from CVS to git. I recommend cvs2svn (in particular its
> cvs2git mode), which is very flexible and will preserve all of your CVS
> history. I would use the trunk version of cvs2svn, as it has many
> improvements compared to the latest released version (2.3.0).
