With a bunch of breaking API changes ahead of me and no intention to get into CVS merge hell (using my own branch for the changes), I decided to give git a test spin. Others have blogged about it already and it appears as if the foundation is looking into the issue already but have postponed a decision until next year. So I did like Andy has done before me and created a git mirror of ECF's CVS with git-cvsimport. I'll report back in a while how things work out with Egit (soon at Eclipse.org) and git <> CVS. If people are interested to use the git repo, we'd need to figure a way to make the master available at ecf2.osuosl.org.
