Introducing: git-cvsexportcommit
A script that can replay commits git into a CVS checkout. Tries to ensure the sanity of the operation and supports mainly manual usage. If you are reckless enough, you can ask it to autocommit when everything has applied cleanly. Combined with a couple more scripts could become part of a git2cvs gateway. Should support adds/removes and binary files. Signed-off-by: Martin Langhoff <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

+git-cvsexportcommit - Export a commit to a CVS checkout
+ [ -h ] [ -v ] [ -c ] [ -p ] [PARENTCOMMIT] COMMITID
+Exports a commit from GIT to a CVS checkout, making it easier
+to merge patches from a git repository into a CVS repository.
+Execute it from the root of the CVS working copy. GIT_DIR must be defined.
+It does its best to do the safe thing, it will check that the files are
+unchanged and up to date in the CVS checkout, and it will not autocommit
+by default.
+Supports file additions, removals, and commits that affect binary files.
+If the commit is a merge commit, you must tell git-cvsapplycommit what parent
+should the changeset be done against.
+ Commit automatically if the patch applied cleanly. It will not
+ commit if any hunks fail to apply or there were other problems.
+ Be pedantic (paranoid) when applying patches. Invokes patch with
+ --fuzz=0
+ Verbose.
