I am using „git cvsexportcommit“ to transfer my git commits to the pkgsrc cvs repository.
The workflow I use is described a bit more in:

What is „missing“ is the review part.
In the past I’ve sent patches via email, shared gists with diffs on irc or opened github pull requests on joyents pkgsrc tree.
This all works ok but I believe there is still room for improvement.
