Ah, sorry. That must make it look like GNU Classpath is even less active
than it is :{ It is good to keep the CVS repo around for some time, just
for the historical information like branches and tags that didn't
transfer to the git repo. But not if people get confused by it and don't
know where the current sources are. Maybe we should add a file to CVS
"README_MOVED_TO_GIT" with information where the actively maintained
sources are now found?
