    Command:

    git-cvsexportcommit

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           git cvsexportcommit [-h] [-u] [-v] [-c] [-P] [-p] [-a] [-d cvsroot]
                   [-w cvsworkdir] [-W] [-f] [-m msgprefix] [PARENTCOMMIT] COMMITID
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Exports a commit from GIT to a CVS checkout, making it easier to merge
           patches from a git repository into a CVS repository.
    
           Specify the name of a CVS checkout using the -w switch or execute it
           from the root of the CVS working copy. In the latter case GIT_DIR must
           be defined. See examples below.
    
           It does its best to do the safe thing, it will check that the files are
           unchanged and up to date in the CVS checkout, and it will not
           autocommit by default.
    
           Supports file additions, removals, and commits that affect binary
           files.
    
           If the commit is a merge commit, you must tell git cvsexportcommit what
           parent the changeset should be done against.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -c
               Commit automatically if the patch applied cleanly. It will not
               commit if any hunks fail to apply or there were other problems.
    
           -p
               Be pedantic (paranoid) when applying patches. Invokes patch with
               --fuzz=0
    
           -a
               Add authorship information. Adds Author line, and Committer (if
               different from Author) to the message.
    
           -d
               Set an alternative CVSROOT to use. This corresponds to the CVS -d
               parameter. Usually users will not want to set this, except if using
               CVS in an asymmetric fashion.
    
           -f
               Force the merge even if the files are not up to date.
    
           -P
               Force the parent commit, even if it is not a direct parent.
    
           -m
               Prepend the commit message with the provided prefix. Useful for
               patch series and the like.
    
           -u
               a Git checkout, but also the CVS checkout. Therefore, Git will
               reset the working directory to the parent commit before proceeding.
    
           -v
               Verbose.
    
    
    

    CONFIGURATION

           cvsexportcommit.cvsdir
               The default location of the CVS checkout to use for the export.
    
    
    

    EXAMPLES

           Merge one patch into CVS
    
                   $ export GIT_DIR=~/project/.git
                   $ cd ~/project_cvs_checkout
                   $ git cvsexportcommit -v <commit-sha1>
                   $ cvs commit -F .msg <files>
    
           Merge one patch into CVS (-c and -w options). The working directory is
           within the Git Repo
    
                           $ git cvsexportcommit -v -c -w ~/project_cvs_checkout <commit-sha1>
    
           Merge pending patches into CVS automatically -- only if you really know
           what you are doing
    
                   $ export GIT_DIR=~/project/.git
                   $ cd ~/project_cvs_checkout
                   $ git cherry cvshead myhead | sed -n 's/^+ //p' | xargs -l1 git cvsexportcommit -c -p -v
