    Sorry, I should have cc'ed you directly but I thought you would
    never miss a subject containing $(random scm tool) :)

    As Peter said, once every 6 hours is fine. Or even more often, what
    the heck, as I said in a previous post I don't think an incremental
    export is that much costly. It could be done at the same time as
    the -bkX patches...

    Why not if there is some interest. As far as I am concerned, I
    have the impression that most kernel BK trees in are
    just temporary trees 'Linus please pull from here' type. I don't
    know if it's useful for somebody else to track those down.

    Speaking from the out-BK point of view, what would really be nice
    is better granularity in the CVS export (a 1-1 changeset to CVS commit
    mapping). I know this involves playing with CVS branches and could
    be a bit tricky but should be doable.
