Well it could except not here where the git repository is being fed from CVS.
CVS is just not gathering a lot of the information that helps git and the
other distributed systems do their job. Namely it has no idea which changes
were committed together as part of the same patch, and it has no idea where
those changes came from and whether they're also in your tree.
