I propose to move from CVS to subversion for the Zope and ZODB projects;
No complaints from me. I do wonder though... one thing I've noticed about ZC's CVS usage in the past is that you folks never export your code for releases. Indeed, the 2.7.0 source release wasn't even checked out with -P so there's a lot of goofy-looking empty directories in the tarball.
I'm sure that was an oversight. Thanks for pointing it out. Of course, with subversion, we won't have those stupid directories in the first place.
A common idiom through a great deal of the code is: __version__='$Revision: 1.201 $'[11:-2]
Now... thats a cute hack, but its also a silly waste of time.
Not enough to mean anything.
BTW, we're moving away from using this idiom, since Python __version__ variables are not widely used and aren't really intended to track individial file revisions AFAICT.

That would break Id variables. We do use $Id$ and I want the full ID string so that the ident command will work.
