OK, there is good news on this front. When last I looked this repo was 
giving errors, so I worked from the copy of the code I already had. (So 
thanks to Kevin for prodding me to check again.) With the latest fromcvs 
and rcsparse packages downloaded from this site I can now make and run 
the 7.4 and 8.1 branches from the imported repository (I haven't checked 
other branches yet.)

So we need to look at how hard it would be to upgrade the scripts on 
git.postgresql.org, and if by doing so we can fix its versions of the 
back branches. It would also be a good idea to have a script that 
regularly checks out the important branches from git and checks that 
they are identical to what is in CVS. That might help to increase Tom's 
confidence level.

cheers
