[PATCH] git-cvsimport-script: handling of tags
This patch changes git-cvsimport-script so that it creates tag objects instead of refs to commits, and adds an option, -u, to convert underscores in branch and tag names to dots (since CVS doesn't allow dots in branches and tags.) Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
