It finally works: I can pull patches from mozilla cvs into a valid checkout of firefox and thunderbird (make -f client.mk checkout); save any changes into git (git-add . ; git-commit); check that git repository out on my laptop (git-clone); create a branch for product specific hacking (git-checkout -b browser master); build hacked mozilla product (reusing any previous compiled versions with ccache) (make -f client.mk build); and then grab and merge in any new cvs updates. (git-pull; git-rebase)

The last issue is how to make any patches I work on look like it was produced with cvs -u8.
