I've just pushed a new trial conversion:

The main differences between this and the previous trial are:
- The author attributions should now be fixed, please let me know if you
see any anomalies in this respect.
- the emptycommit-* tags/branches are now gone.
- the 'tags' used for revert and backport now use more gittish style
revert: and backport:
- the log entries for c++ style functions containing :: are now handled
correctly by my summary generation script.

Other issues are still being worked on.

There's a bogus libstdc++ directory at the top level. That hasn't been
present for nearly 20 years, so some commit that should have deleted
it seems to be missing or incorrect.

It was removed by r39445 i.e. this commit in the current Git mirror:

             Remove V2 C++ library.
             * Remove --enable-libstdcxx_v3 support.

             * (site.exp): Always set HAVE_LIBSTDCXX_V3.
             * Remove --enable-libstdcxx_v3 support.
             * configure: Regenerated.

     git-svn-id: svn+ssh://

Ok, this is one to keep an eye on. There are a number of anomalous commmits at present, which Eric is working on with a new approach to replaying the SVN data into reposurgeon. Once that is done we're hoping that this sort of problem will go away. (of course, if it doesn't then the chances are we won't be using reposurgeon for the conversion at all).

This repo conversion is really for checking that the summaries I'm generating are not just garbled, and the authors problem from the previous trial are now fixed.
