Grump.   The very least git-cvspserver could do in this case is fail with an error message.

I think we should update import-gnulib.sh to use git not cvs, then.

I'm reopening this.  It appears that git cvs-pserver currently does not understand 'cvs up -D', therefore, there is no way to pick a fixed date (ie. running ./gnulib-import.sh today gives different results than what is intended).  We could either wait for the git folks to fix cvs-pserver, or switch to using a git clone.  For that matter, it would be nice to turn on the savannah git capabilities for findutils.

The import-gnulib.sh script uses "cvs update" on any existing gnulib CVS working tree it finds in gnuli-cvs/gnulib.   However gnulib now uses git as a master repository, and the old CVS repository is now read only (that is, that version is not updated from git). 

This means that the gnulib code in findutils-4.3.9 was silently out of date, and the latest updates date from some two months before the release of 4.3.9.
