    cvsexportcommit: introduce -W for shared working trees (between Git and CVS) · d775734c
    Johannes Schindelin authored
    If you have a CVS checkout, it is easy to import the CVS history by
    calling "git cvsimport".  However, interacting with the CVS repository
    using "git cvsexportcommit" was cumbersome, since that script assumes
    separate working directories for Git and CVS.
    
    Now, you can call cvsexportcommit with the -W option.  This will
    automatically discover the GIT_DIR, and it will check out the parent
    commit before exporting the commit.
    
    The intended workflow is this:
    
    $ CVSROOT=$URL cvs co module
    $ cd module
    $ git cvsimport
    hack, hack, hack, making two commits, cleaning them up using rebase -i.
    $ git cvsexportcommit -W -c -p -u HEAD^
    $ git cvsexportcommit -W -c -p -u HEAD
