In another mail I asked for time till June to get something set up
that would allow an easy migration from CVS to Git. But it seems that
my intention to contribute again to the M3 project was rather unrealistic.
I'm so busy with customer projects for Elego and some private matters
that cannot be delayed anymore that I don't find the time for even
a few hours of M3-related work, and when I do, I seem to lack the power.

So I suggest that somebody else takes over the lead for the CVS to
Git migration and the release engineering for the long overdue M3
release. Elego will provide the existing infrastructure or some
equivalent as long as it is needed, but I doubt that anybody here will
be able to contribute much active work, like adapting scripts,
writing up documentation etc.

I'd really like to see a new release, and watch Jenkins jobs checkout
sources from git, but somebody else will have to make that happen.
