git cvs-import gotchas on ubuntu and using firebird repo

I started to import the firebird cvs repository into my local git mirror.Why ?
Maybe because the bzr import failed after >30 hours ! also seems that fisheye is dead no changes to changelog there.
So my plan is to import the firebird cvs using git cvs-import and then push it to gitorious or bzr launchpad later (request a new git to bzr import)

First you need to install git-core and git-cvs
$ sudo apt-get install git-core git-cvs

you need to create the firebird2 dir with
$ mkdir firebird2
and specify it when you do the import with "-C firebird"
then you need to add the repository path from sf.net
"-d:pserver:anonymous@firebird.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/firebird"

First you need to do cvs login
$ cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@firebird.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/firebird login

Here is the complete command line for importing firebird in local git repository
