I think I have answered this question already once in this thread, and
a few times in similar threads with Eric in the past.
People track CVS repos that they have not control over. Smart
programmers forced to work with a corporate CVS repo. It happens also
with SVN, and witness the popularity of git-svn which can sanely
interact with an "active" svn repo.
This is a valid use case. Hard (impossible?) to support. But there
should be no surprise as to its reasons.
- ask interesting questions
- don't get distracted with shiny stuff - working code first
