If those `git config' commands return nothing then you can pass
`COMMITTER' values as a command line argument, as usual.  To setup
those keys run
    git config --global "John Doe"
    git config --global address@hidden
However, probably it's safer to obtain keys values with `--get' option.

Without this change I previously got a redirection error due to the
`<..>' in `COMMITTER' value, but testing again the error is gone :-S

`git add file' stages `file' for the next commit, then `git commit'
actually commits all staged files.  So `git add ChangeLog ; git
commit' should be equivalent to `cvs commit ChangeLog'.  `git commit
-a' commits all tracked files, also non explicitly staged ones, but I
don't think it's a good idea to use it.

Ok, I'll remove the `rm', but you can bring back the previous
ChangeLog with `git checkout HEAD^ ChangeLog'.

One can get the commit hash for a specific date with
    git rev-list -n 1 --until=<date> master
and use it as `TAG_EXPORT'.

The attached patch should fix the problems you pointed out.  Other
comments?  Thanks for your suggestions!
