This project extracts the relevant parts of OpenSolaris useful for porting ZFS.
First, make sure you've got the hg fast-export submodules:
git submodule init git submodule update
in ~/.hgrc add:
Get a local clone of OpenSolaris using the

The duration of this step will vary based on your bandwidth. Budget for however long it takes you to pull down about 350MB of data.
Converting the Repo
Converting the repository is a two step process. First, we build a new mercurial repository from the important parts of the old one, and then convert that repository to a git repo.
The reason we do this in two steps is because mercurial has a repo rewriting tool to pull out the parts we want, which also makes the git conversion faster.
