Please check the current beta git conversions

We've been updating the svn-git converter and pushing out a new
converted repo every two weeks, and are now approaching the time where
we'd like to commit to the tree generated by the exporter, and
guarantee that hashes will remain consistent from this point. At this
point the Git Working Group believes the conversion represents a
high-fidelity translation of the Subversion history, but would
appreciate additional review in case we've missed anything.

I'd ask folks with an interest in the FreeBSD repository to clone the
beta conversion and review the converted history in the specific areas
they are interested in - e.g., specific contrib/ software, device
drivers, etc. This will also present our final opportunity to change
the author map file, if necessary.

The beta src tree can be cloned via:
% git clone freebsd-cgit-beta

Please follow up this week if you notice any discrepancies or author
entries that require updates.
