It appears that the git conversion of the CVS repository is seriously
screwed up. For example, if you look at this:;a=shortlog;h=refs/tags/REL8_3_10

The first few revs look OK, but the you get to this:

This commit was manufactured by cvs2svn to create branch REL8_3_STABLE

Prior to that commit, this history is nonsense - it appears to be the
history of our 9.0 development prior to that date. I would say we're
going back to good old CVS.

It's too bad that nobody noticed this sooner, but I'm glad I noticed
today rather than tomorrow.
