Sounds likely -- and cvsimport restarts gracefully, though you might want to do

   git checkout HEAD

to get a usable checkout if the very first import failed. However, the
default head is master, and what you want to look at is origin or
whatever you passed as your -o parameter. I use cvshead normally, so I

   git log cvshead

Oh, that was an earlier PEBKAK at my end: I did git log HEAD instead
of git log cvshead. My import is now at  293145 (cvshead +0000
2005-12-25 12:24:42) which looks promising.
