The HOWTO will likely cover all of this, but in case you care about it
now...  I found a few discrepancies between what your message said
should happen and my reality...

Following the clone (but not doing the cvs stuff), this command:

yields no output.  No remote branches?

That does list bunches of tags.

That command yields:

fatal: ambiguous argument 'svn/SAMBA_3_2': unknown revision or path
not in the working tree.
Use '--' to separate paths from revisions

I suspect, however, that this is an issue of me learning how to use
git.  Things seem to have gotten here, as if I do

 git checkout -b djl-v3-2-unstable v3-2-unstable

I (very quickly!) get the tree built (in samba-draft, it seems, not in
a subdirectory called djl-v3-2-unstable as I would have expected, but
again, this is probably my lack of familiarity with git.)

I'm eager to see the HOWTO.  :-)
