No; to my knowledge there is no way to convert a git repository back to
a CVS repository, if you do know of a method then I would like to have a
look at it.

I think we should tag Dave's git tree with the tag "AMBER11", move it
out of Dave's home directory to somewhere accessible to the CVS account
holders on ark and then give them read access to it. This would form an
initial short term solution; we need to then work out read/write access
out access after that.
