I investigated it and realized that this was my mistake. I had copied the imported git repository from my laptop to my desktop using 'scp -r' and it changed .git/HEAD to a file, not a link as it should have been. I copied it again, this time with tar to preserve symbolic links, and cvsimport started to work again. So this was just a PEBCAK. Thanks for your help. > Otherwise. how large is the cvs repo? 'git log | grep commit | wc -l' says 2704 commits. I have to say that git has made my life a lot easier. It was really easy to import the CVS history to git and now I can read the history properly with gitk. With CVS I would have been banging my head to the wall all the time. Now all I want is svnimport and darcsimport :) -- Kalle Valo - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to [EMAIL PROTECTED] More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
