I would say, some time ago publicly available cvs repository "did not feel
well". I could not find cmd2 (seems to be not available todays too), gns or
even cmd3 code and any attempt to convert it to git or do anything that
requires "cvs rlog" resulted in this:

:pserver:anonymous at cvs.lustre.org:/lustre lustre-core
password file:
cvsroot: :pserver:anonymous at cvs.lustre.org:2401/lustre
pass: A
cvs rlog: Logging lustre-core
cvs rlog: Logging lustre-core/asobd
cvs rlog: Logging lustre-core/autoconf
cvs rlog: Logging lustre-core/cmm
cvs rlog: Logging lustre-core/cmobd
cvs rlog: Logging lustre-core/cobd
cvs rlog: Logging lustre-core/conf
cvs rlog: Logging lustre-core/contrib
cvs rlog: Logging lustre-core/demos
cvs [rlog aborted]: unexpected '\x0' reading revision number in RCS
file /lustre/lustre-core/demos/Attic/snaprest.sh,v
exit: 1

Obviously demos/snaprest.sh,v contained garbage. Now it seems to be fixed.

I think this is why Peter said it is "not clear" if all valuable branches
are available in public cvs.
