It's as simple as running this command:
$> mkdir blosxom.git
$> cd blosxom.git
$> editor authors # and put lines like "login=Full Name <email@...>" into it
$> git-cvsimport -v -d blosxom.cvs.sf.net:/cvsroot/blosxom -A authors -m -a blosxom2
Of course you want to substitute blosxom and blosxom2 with the
corresponding project and module names. For creating the bare export for
having it somewhere online I use the informations from the Debian Wiki:
http://wiki.debian.org/Alioth/Git - "Using personal Git repositories",
of course also tweaked towards that it's no public_git on most servers
but you can put it just somewhere http:// reachable, too (like I tried).
Hope this gets you started, and will keep you updated with my findings
with respect about required/available git commands on sourceforge.
Possibly someone already did put them into their shell accounts already.
P.S.: I'm just dying laughing: I searched for "git on sourceforge" and
found <http://repo.or.cz/>. The funny part for me is: My
git-cvsimport that I did was for tetrinet - and it's the same Petr
Baudis maintaining that public git hosting that I am working together
with in tetrinet. This can't be a coincidence.
