the main developer has to merge them into his version of the patch by hand and
mail out a new patch. The whole point of a revision control system is to
provide tools to make that easier.


O.k. everyone pay attention, I am about to agree with Greg! ;)

Greg are their tools to migrate CVS to monotone or whatever your
favorite is? The reason I ask is that I migrate the CVS to SVN every 4
hours I think it is and it isn't perfect.

Are you going to do trials for just Monotone, or will you include alternatives like, say, Mercurial (which seems to have quite a bit of traction, and should appeal to you as it's written in Python)?

There is a generic conversion tool called Tailor that might help you: http://www.darcs.net/DarcsWiki/Tailor
