I have created a temporary koha git repository from CVS at
which you may like to test.  Apologies for the ugly name.
The repository updates from CVS around 15:00 UTC daily.
There is a HTTP copy available - please ask.  It's nasty to use,
but it can slip through more firewalls.

An initial download with a command like
  git clone git://serene.ttllp.co.uk/opt/koha.git/ koha-git
downloads about 35Mb of repository.  For comparison, the CVS repository
is 260Mb, but you download only about 5Mb and use 45Mb of disk for each
checkout you work on.  If you want to work on another branch with git,
you can switch with git checkout or clone your local repository and
avoid another download.

Please work on local branches and not one of the CVS-created branches,
else it might get very messy when you next run "git pull" or similar.
To work on a local branch, first find the remote branch with
  git branch -r
or a tag with
  git tag -l
then check it out with something like
  git checkout origin/rel_2_2
and you might get a note which suggests to make a local branch from
that with a command like
  git checkout -b my-22

To check where you are, use git show-branch.  Check the man.

Note that the above commands may or may not work with git 1.4.  If
unsure, check man git before running.

Let me know if it breaks for you ;-)
