Sure, one would have to host somewhere other than sourceforge to use
subversion. I was under the impression that this was an option but
couldn't find the posts in the archive. I'm guessing the sourceforge
quote above is a year old, and though it may have been accurate when it
was written, it isn't anymore. There have been fifteen releases of SVN
in the last year (since 1.0), and only one of which has had new
features, the rest have been bug/security fixes. The subversion
developers are doing an excellent job in this regard.
