I'm working on the revival right now. Repository generation is still
broken, and likely to remain so until I can make the export-stream stage
work, but just a few minutes ago I coaxed it into generating what looks
like graphviz markup describing a commit graph on standard output.
Even though dot(1) barfs on the markup, this is encouraging. It almost
certainly means that the analysis and parsing stages aren't broken, and
by stubbing out enough functions I can figure out what is being passed
to the broken repository-maker well enough for my purposes.
Actually, I've already figured out how to generate blob and commit-header
markup. The hard part is generating fileops; I don't quite understand
the generated data structures well enough to do that yet. But I'm
making progress, and feeling more optimistic than I was yesterday.
In related news, I've sent Michael Haggerty patches that fix the visible
problems with cvs2git that I enumerated in previous mail.
