My experience is that git-cvsimport does not work correctly. Or at least
it didn't without a patched version of cvsps. Perhaps that's all been
fixed up, but that's why it's important to do a verification that history
has been accurately preserved rather than just publishing whatever results
come out.

If anyone would like to work on the cvs to git conversion what I would
like to see is a script/configuration file to invoke the conversion
utility and then a script to do a comparison between any tag in cvs and
the corresponding tag in the new git repository.
