The NetBSD CVS repository has seen a lot of work over the recent months to clean up various historic artefacts. Together with the improvements in cvs2fossil and the Fossil->Git conversion, it is now possible to provide a precise, up-to-date conversion.
The Git repositories can be found on github, checkout pkgsrc and src.
The Fossil repositories can be found at src (mirror) and pkgsrc (mirror). The raw database as faster alternative to cloning can be found on ftp.NetBSD.org.
This repositories are synchronised with a normal latency of 2h. The only differences between a checkout from CVS and Fossil/Git are supposed to be related to historic checkouts of files pulled from a vendor branch. The implemented behaviour is consistent with the changes in the file. RCS IDs are all expanded using the same rules CVS follows.
