There's nothing magical about SVN--it is open source
too and subject to the same time constraints and
developer limitations of any other project.  However,
by dividing open source resources across two version
control projects, the economy of scale is lost, and
I'm concerned we will end up with two mediocre
open-source version control systems instead.


Point well-taken about diluting the pool of OSS projects and available developers... My point in bringing this up was more to put the alert out there, and also to note that other projects @apache.org (most notably forrest) have moved to SVN. Being a relative newbie to CVS, it doesn't make much difference to me which one we use, although I definitely like the idea of supporting one system and sticking to it.

Have we thought of
doing it ourselves?
