CTM's advantages outweigh the disadvantages for me. I don't run out of
disk space(*), and the server failures have been rare. Certainly, the
of CTM delivery exceeded the reliability of all of the M$ systems the guys
in the neighbouring cubicles managed at my previous employer. Until now,
What we need now is someone to supply hardware and some connectivity. I still
think CTM has sufficient advantages to justify its continued existence.
I think the project should fund it.
(*) The tangle you get in after ctm croaks from lack of disk space were
to have been fixed. I don't think they have been. It shouldn't be too
though. All those md5 checksums make repairs trivial to automate, in theory.
