SourceForge is going to offer SV as an alternative to cvs (see

I perceive SV as a nice alternative (just as plain RCS, fancy BitKeeper,
artsy PRCS, ambitious aegis, etc. etc.). It might be able to attract a large
community, just as CVS has done it. Time will show. But CVS won't go away,
and I'd never bet the farm on anything that new. Why not start with CVS (or
whatever now), and consider SV a year from now?

Kind regards,

It's interesting to note though that one of the key developers Karl Fogel
wrote one of the most comprehensive books on how to use CVS, and that
Subversion is positioning itself to eventually take over many existing
users of CVS by fixing many of the issues that have never been resolved in
CVS (and arguably can't be because of its design).
