I spent some four or five hours (perhaps more) converting the CVS
repository of fontforge into a git repository.  The whole git repo, with
at least 6 years worth of history, is smaller than 25MB.

Since some people might prefer a git repository to SVN or CVS, could we
host this mirror on alioth?

I can put a cron script there to update the repository to have the
latest version.

The CVS version of fontforge has some features needed by real world uses
(read: implementing some substitution tables for ligatures for OpenType

Christian? Any opinions?

Thanks, Rogério Brito.
