    git-archimport: allow remapping branch names · d9cb5399
    Paolo Bonzini authored
    This patch adds support to archimport for remapping the branch
    names to match those used in git more closely.  This is useful
    for projects that migrate to git (as opposed to users that want
    to use git on Arch-based projects).  For example, one can choose
    an Arch branch name and call it "master".
    
    The new command-line syntax works even if there is a colon in
    a branch name, since only the part after the last colon is taken
    to be the git name (git does not allow colons in branch names).
    
    The new feature is implemented so that archives rotated every
    year can also be remapped into a single git archive.
