Host AP/hostapd/wpa_supplicant repository and cvs vs. git

I'm considering of moving from using CVS to git for Host AP / hostapd /
wpa_supplicant repository and would like to know whether someone is
depending on the current anonymous pserver access to the CVS repository.
For those who do not know git, it is the new content tracking tool used
in Linux kernel development.

My git repository would be available in the same way as the CVS
repository and there would be a web interface to the new repository, so
the main change would not be in what is being available, but just in the
protocol used to access it. I would probably leave the CVS repository
available for some time and/or make it available as a downloadable
tarball of the cvsroot directory, but all the new changes would be going
only into the git repository. Please let me know if this would cause

If you are interested in seeing what the git repository looks like, the
web interface to my test repostitory is available at and the git repository can
be cloned from
