a few years ago, we switched from using CVS to git. Since at the time I
didn't know about git cvsimport (I was just beginning to use git), I
checked out the most recent version from CVS and made that the initial
commit of our git repository. This unfortunately meant that we lost all
history prior to the switch.
We would now like to add that missing history into git. I converted the CVS
to git and have two git repositories now, one that is the converted CVS,
and one that contains all changes since then. How do I merge the two?
Naively this shouldn't be hard, I simply would have to glue together the
two histories, since there is no overlap. But how do I do that?
