When developing the system activation bits and bobs I was using a git
repo and just using a branch upstream-cvs when I did cvs up's. This
mostly worked, until files were renamed, removed or created, when it
broke horribly. If DBUS has used git a few months ago, the system
activation branch would have been much easier to merge and test and
saved me many hours of cursing CVS.

+1 for moving to git from me.
