They are talking about a Subversion migration, but you probably
know that.

I don't care which, but why both? Don't you feel that defeats
the purpose? Which one am /I/ supposed to use? Who want's to
sign up for synchornization detail?

Or is there a cool way to keep them in sync that I don't know about?

Or do you plan on developing out of Subversion, but migrating
snapshots and releases to Boost CVS? That makes some sense.

Either one is fine. Subversion is preferred. By me that is.

Also, If you're setting up a new Subverion repository, avoid DB
4.1, use 4.0, 4.2, or the fsfs file system. (Lost a repository
to 4.1 recently.)
