Subject: Linux-mac68k Conversion from CVS to Git

Hi All,

I've finally converted the old CVS repository to Git, two years after 
sourceforge made their CVS services read-only. [1]

This means the web tree for the website can be safely 
updated once again.

I think it would be a good idea to move the old CVS repo to the FTP 
archive [2]. Keeping both CVS and Git repos on sourceforge is undesirable 

1) it's not obvious which repo is authoritative

2) the Penguin-18 source in CVS is incomplete and has only one commit

3) the Linux source in CVS is a mess of branches and tags that is much 
   more confusing than the Git conversion, which has been tidied up.

Please post any questions/comments that you may have about this.
