Migrate MelatiSite from CVS to github

Re-visiting (why did I not complete this at the time?)

Following How to export revision history from mercurial or git to cvs?

On hanuman I created an id file git_authors mapping cvs ids to github name, email format for all contributors:

timp=Tim Pizey<>
then create a repository on github (melati in this example, I already have uploaded my ssh public key for this machine)
cd ~
git cvsimport -d /usr/cvsroot -C MelatiSite -r cvs -k -A git_authors MelatiSite

cd melati
echo A jdbc to java object relational mapping system. 1999-2011 > README.txt
git add README.txt
git commit -m "Initial" README.txt
git remote add origin
git push -u origin master
