I mentioned that already.  They are actually in the cvsimport I
have here.  But don't show up when you clone.  I'm still looking
into it.  The tags are listed in packed-refs file.  It might the
git-fast-import that cvs2svn used.  I have an idea to fix that.

These are real tags in svn so I don't think I would call
them useless.  For example, the trunk-final-update tag
was when we killed trunk and add the svn:externals links
to SAMBA_3_0.  The DAY_ZERO stuff is unneeded now, but
has no harm in staying put in the cvs/svn import tree for

You're right.  Now that's odd.  I'll check.

See above.  Definitely doable.

I can probably fix this as well just by assuming
<$author at samba.org>.

CVSIN is gone in the grafted branches.  Are you looking at the
imported the trees?  Or the grafted ones?

Pretty sure this is fixable by editing the svn revprop files.
