Hi Steve -

We our in the course of producing a Subversion Replicator just like our
CVS Replicator. Talking with Subversion admins and users we do come
across one issue regularly   - transaction deadlocks - with Berkeley db

Some admins routinely restart the Subversion server when they encounter
it. Most of the time that is enough to fix the issue. Seems to us that
they need to work out the stability part more.

There is dependence of Berkeley db if you want any transactional
support. File system backend will not provide you that. You can search
for issues with Berkeley db. On SMP boxes issues with deadlocks and
concurrency control have been around for a while. SVN with Bdb backend
inherits all that.

Also these days most IDEs (Eclipse, WebSphere, Ideaj etc) have CVS
support built-in. There are far more 3rd party tools and plug-ins for
CVS just by it being there longer.
