Re: Fixing cvs2svn branchpoints


Here are complete lists of reparentings I think should be done on the 
commits that start branches, along with my notes on branches with messy 
initial commits but where I don't think any reparenting should be done.  
The REPARENT: lines have the meaning I described in 
<https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2019-10/msg00127.html>.

Of the 54 branches with suspicious branchpoints, I have 32 with 
automatically suggested or verified reparentings, meeting the criteria 
given in that message for the new parent not being suspicious, and 7 more 
I think should be reparented although the new parent is still suspicious 
in some ways (e.g. because of vendor branch issues or non-atomic 
branching).  The remaining 15 suspicious cases are ones where I think the 
existing branchpoint is the best one available.

Automatically suggested or verified reparentings:

In the case of cfg-branch, the reparenting was suggested automatically
based on the branchpoint tag with a note of possible mismatch between
branch and branchpoint tag; that mismatch appears just to be a vendor
branch artifact and the reparenting seems correct.

Manually identified reparentings (not perfect matches, but seem the
best available and better than the existing parents):

REPARENT: /branches/structure-aliasing-branch 87042 /trunk 86982 /trunk 86980

My notes on branches with imperfect parents to leave as-is, as
considered good-enough after analysis (even where the automatic
process suggested a reparenting):

Vendor branch artifacts, as seen in various branches, are generally
cases where a file was first imported on a CVS vendor branch, and then
successive imports done there before any non-vendor-branch changes
were made, so meaning that for a while revisions 1.1.1.1, 1.1.1.2,
etc. were the HEAD revision as that's how CVS defines HEAD in that
case.  For some reason, in at least some cases where CVS was used to
create branches while that was the case, it created them based on
revision 1.1 of the file, the first revision, rather than the latest
revision on the vendor branch, meaning that the branch creation commit
involves reverting those files to their initially imported versions -
in the cases where I checked the CVS ,v files, cvs2svn was accurately
representing that peculiarity of the CVS history.

Apart from vendor branch artifacts, the main issue detected by my
script as a possible problem with the branchpoint is CVS branching
being non-atomic so the actual branchpoint spans parts of multiple
separate CVS commits.
