I want to consider the conversion machinery essentially frozen at this
point and not to add any new features not present in the conversion now
being reviewed (we can still fix e.g. isolated commit authors or summaries
or any serious bugs found, but in the absence of bugs I intend to stay
with reposurgeon commit 82ba8de65882affb7ffabb4433cfd1db3a14215c as used
to generate the gcc-reposurgeon-8 test conversion, and any gcc-conversion
changes should be to fix bugs or isolated authors or commit summaries).
That is, history based on tarballs should be on the side, not as ancestors
of history converted from SVN, as I described at
<https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2019-12/msg00521.html>, so such a version of
history can be developed at leisure without distracting from reviewing the
main conversion or risking perturbing it unnecessarily.
