Binary package “cvs-fast-export” in ubuntu kinetic

Export an RCS or CVS history as a fast-import stream

 cvs-fast-export, formerly "parsecvs", does what its new name implies:
 exports CVS repositories in a format suitable for git fast-import.
 This program analyzes a collection of RCS files in a CVS repository
 (or outside of one) and, when possible, emits an equivalent history
 in the form of a fast-import stream. Not all possible histories can
 be rendered this way; the program tries to emit useful warnings when
 it can't. The program can also produce a visualization of the
 resulting commit DAG in the DOT format handled by the graphviz suite.
 The distribution includes a tool, cvssync, for fetching masters from
 CVS remote repositories so cvs-fast-export can see them. You will
 need rsync installed to use it.
 A wrapper script called cvsconvert runs a conversion to git and
 looks for content mismatches with the original CVS. You will need
 CVS and Git installed to use it.
 Also included is a tool called cvsstrip that strips content out of
 trees of RCS/CVS masters, leaving only metadata structure in place.
