2 weeks is UNACCEPTABLE.

I have not recieved anything.  Furthermore, the gyrations it appears I
will have to take to get back on Savannah are more time consuming than
my desire to do so, which doesn't help matters.

I am not content and would like to move to something else.  Personally
we were getting ready to setup subversions at work.  It sounds like
James is using that.  I would like to use something that is fairly
standard to my work, not something "different".  Since we haven't
implemented either at work we could just as well do "arch".  What are
the real differences and the maturity levels of each?

We need to migrate.  The patch method will eat more time than switching.

consensus and work out a plan.
