Subject: Fwd: git-cvsimport documentation improvement

Message-ID: <CAOnWdog6k04pPdK1+n45x=+dXpSsqC_FUZhCBJqcAEd=n4dZpA@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

The git-cvsimport docs say:

WARNING: git cvsimport uses cvsps version 2, which is considered
deprecated; it does not work with cvsps version 3 and later. If you
are performing a one-shot import of a CVS repository consider using
cvs2git or cvs-fast-export.

However, I can find no trace of cvsps version 3. The latest seems to
be 2.2, which is marked as a pre-release, and cvsps 2.1 seems to be
the most commonly packaged version.

I understand that it's still better to use other tools than git
cvsimport, but perhaps the warning could be better worded; for
example:

WARNING: git cvsimport uses cvsps, which is considered deprecated. If
you are performing a one-shot import of a CVS repository consider
using cvs2git or cvs-fast-export.
