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,
of course.

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.
