I, for one, don't want to discuss the issue of what to use again -- I'd like
to spend our time on getting the changeover done. For many reasons, we need
to get off of CVS -- the faster the better. As part of the shift, we plan to
move the hosting off of sourceforge to Indiana Univ. One advantage of using
SNV is that their admins are quite familiar with SVN and will be helping to
support us. Not to mention that SVN is becoming widespread amoung OSS
projects, etc, etc. So there may be products that are better in some way then
subversion, but my sense is the clearest and easiest path is to SVN.
