cvsimport: add support for new style remote layout
cvsimport creates any branches found in the remote CVS repository in the refs/heads namespace. This makes sense for a repository conversion. When using git as a sane interface to a remote CVS repository, that repository may well remain as the 'master' respository. In this model it makes sense to import the CVS repository into the refs/remotes namespace. Add a new option '-r <remote>' to set the remote name for this import. When this option is specified branches are named refs/remotes/<remote>/branch, with HEAD named as master matching git-clone separate remotes layout. Without branches are placed ion refs/heads, with HEAD named origin as before. Signed-off-by: Andy Whitcroft <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
