Using git for handling CVS checkouts for drupal contrib

Details are on Maintaining a Drupal module using Git

For Mac OSX users you will need cvsps (fink install cvsps for example).

Useful alias for your .gitconfig:

drupalcontribcvs = !sh -c 'git cvsimport -p x -v -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.drupal.org:/cvs/drupal-contrib contributions/modules/$0'

This allows you to call

git drupalcontribcvs <modulename>
