It took lots of time during which a couple of bugs in Ohloh were uncovered,
but thanks to the great support from Ohloh team our huge repo is now imported.

You can browse some stats at

It's fun that Ohloh thinks we have quite alot of D source code
- this is due to foobar.conf.d files bundled with some packages.

Note that all our current/core/extra/unstable CVS repos history
is missing after SVN was finally imported.

I'm not sure about CVS/SVN URLs for our old repos,
could someone please provide me with the following info:
* CVS URL to our old current/core/extra/unstable CVS repos
* same for community CVS repo
  currently it is
":pserver:anonymous:anonymous at cvs.archlinux.org:/srv/cvs/cvs-community
 - is it correct? (Ohloh could not update from that URL for a long time)
* SVN URL to the new community SVN repo
