Cool - I'm new to git, so I really appreciate any help that I can get.

Thats how I figured I'd work - though I don't yet understand what
the advantage of "rebase" is over "merge".

Currently, I've setup a git repo that pulls in the changes from the SVN
repo, and pushed them to my main soc git repo. On that main repo I have
two branches, master and pgsql-head, and I call "cg-merge pgsql-head"
if I want to merge with CVS HEAD.

Having a git mirror of the pgsql CVS would be great.
BTW, I've just check out, and noticed that there is already a
git mirror of the pgsql CVS:
