A better predictor of the distros' decisions is probably which other
packages depend on cvsps. As one data point: on Debian squeeze and on
Ubuntu precise, only two packages depend on cvsps (git-cvs and
bzr-cvsps-import) and one suggests it (chora2, "a code repository
viewing component for horde framework"). So also by this standard they
are unlikely to feel a lot of pressure to update quickly to cvsps3.
