Andrew hold on, He didn't say *which* dev cycle. He is just enthusiastic and the reality is this project is about 2 years overdue to run screaming from the burning building that is CVS. Does that mean we should change? Only if the people doing development feel a need to change. However, there is a distinct feeling of *OMG CHANGE RUN RUN* whenever it comes to anything infrastructure (and frankly some parts of code) in this project. It is certainly valid that, if it ain't broke don't fix it. CVS is not broke for us, it is however barely maintained. That in itself is enough to consider moving off. The fact that SVN *is* a CVS replacement and does not change most of the workflow of existing developers is an additional strong argument to use it. All that being said, I welcome Warren's enthusiasm, a lot of the hackers in this group could use a strong dose of positive thinking about change around here. Lastly, who really cares? Does it really matter? No. I would much rather Warren (if he has the skills) put some effort into Patch Review. Sincerely, Joshua D.
