Sure, that's not for me to decide.

I never had doubts about it - and it was a good reason per se not to
do that kind of switch.

So far, you're the first one to complain;) As long as fd.o keeps CVS -
it means fd.o is happy to keep at least some projects in it. And I
think xkeyboard-config will be there till fd.o decides to drop CVS
altogether (though I'd prefer to upgrade to Subversion - but it is not
crucial for me). I do not think there is any issue here - there are so
many CVS-based projects in this world (yet) that every maintainer
works with CVS anyway, I guess.

Again, you are pushing me to learn something (about git) which is
completely out of my interests;) As I said, I do not see any real
requirement for it - noone complained so far regarding taking
xkeyboard-config from CVS. Is this a serious issue for you, honestly?
It looks like you see the problem where I fail to see it;)

Of course, if you'd commit to setup git-cvsimport for your purposes, I
would just thank you.
