As another attempt, I'm trying to convert a CVS repository to GIT. cvs-fast-export was recommended. The only problem is, I have no idea how to actually do so. I have it built, but how do I call it? There's tons of flags explained here but that's more confusing than it is helping.
Is there a short explanation somewhere of the actual process of conversion?
The repository is remote, and I normally go in via SSH. I'm not sure if the folder structure of this project is normal. Here's roughly what it looks like:
(on the remote server)/somefolder/cvs/anotherfolder/
Contains: CVSROOT repo-I-want-to-clone-name
repo-I-want-to-clone-name contains an
Attic, and all the source code files with
,vafter them. (No CVSROOT)
CVSROOT contains an
Attic, cleanlog.sh, cvsignore, checkoutlist, checkoutlist,v, editinfo, editinfo,v, commmitinfo, loginfo, taginfo, etc. (No source-code like files here)
