I would not mind going to a subversion system on 

The benefits: 

* We can admin our own tree/server; so, when something goes wrong, 
  the "buck stops here", as the quote goes. 

* Subversions would be easier to maintain from what I understand.

The disadvantages: 

* Someone will have to convert our tree over, maintaining its history. I
can do this over the holidays if no one has done it before as I have 2
weeks off at the end of the year. 

* CVS is fairly universal.  A lot of tools/platforms readily support it.
Is this true of subversion? How is windows support?  Does anyone know of
a read-only SUBVERSION-to-CVS gateway so we could still offer anonymous
cvs checkouts?

What advantages does staying with provide versus
moving to our own server?
