We have an embedded-ish mini-distro based on Fedora, for which the
sources are kept in git, with the local branches based on the F-8
branches in the repositories of the Fedora CVS->git conversion
available here:


(Unfortunately, rsync access to the Fedora CVS server was disabled
after the Great Security Incident, and when I asked about having it
re-enabled they told me they couldn't do it because of an
infrastructure freeze -- so the git conversion isn't updating for now.)
