The tailor tool moves patches and changesets between different repositories,
preserving as much information as possible. The repositories can be managed
by different version control systems. Currently, ArX, Bazaar, Bazaar-NG,
Codeville, CVS, Darcs, Git, Mercurial, Monotone, Subversion,
and Tla are supported.
While tailor is useful for one-time operation, when switching to a different
version control system, it can also synchronise repositories on an ongoing
basis. Changesets are either pulled one-way from a master repository, or
migrated back and forth for full two-way synchronisation.
