I think it's just been a few projects right now.  I've
only heard Forrest switching ATM.

Hopefully, there will be no "heavy lifting" needed for
a switch though--we can just give Infrastructure the
word to switch and it's done.

Apparently so...I checked the cvshome.org site and
they even have advertisements for SVN (lower left
corner) on their home page.

Noted again.  These endorsements do help in deciding
whether to switch.  6-9 months (my previous guess) is
probably too much time, but let's wait about three or
four and see what happens.  (It's not just SVN, maybe
the new servers they have for it are clunky, etc. 
Time is good for these things to iron out.)  If only
two or three are switching, I would be leery against
it. If it's half of Apache by then, let's do so.
