That's an interesting set of tests.

You could keep the git repo in sync with git-cvsimport (I believe it will
create a patch for ever cvs commit).  That could be automated pretty

Abs will just work w.r.t. staying up to date.  And rsync will just have to
be updated any time you want to test.

The hardest part is remembering to do the tests over and reproducably
(keeping copies of the previous test directories).
