*Wonderfull* ! Thanks a lot !

I will no longer have to keep a copy of that 7G cvsroot, finished also
hours lost waiting for an update to complete :/ humm, XXIth century
old tools... :)

Btw, how did the convertion occur ? I guess with git-cvsimport ? I
remind that several ,v files were corrupted/unparsable and keithp'
parsecvs was unable to work with them.

Conversion was done by fromcvs tool. IT can do one time conversion and incremental updates, too.

Can we consider this tree stable (ie. do real work on top of it), or
may it be recreated to say fix the Id issue or stuff like that ?

For now this tree should be stable, but it was done for testing to found out if there can be some usage for git trees inside of NetBSD users group.
