Resyncing becomes next to impossible if we start writing to both repos.
Thus the CVS repo has been set to read only _without_ syncing it to the
new github repo.
If there are outstanding contributions, one will have to create a patch
against CVS HEAD and apply it to the new git repo.

I personally use a combination of egit/jgit 0.9 nightly and the Linux
command line client. This is mainly because I haven't explored all
functionality of egit yet. Keep in mind though, that we will have to
wait for egit 1.0 to be feature complete).

Also Pro Git [0] might be worth a read too.
