There are so many books at the local bookstore on CVS I think this
partly explains it.  Also CVS is not the toy of the month so all the
people who are just playing with SCM for the sake of playing (not
working in a company where it really needs to work/100s of users) are
using other 'flavour of the month' tools.

Finally I think it also is because more software development is done on
windows where GUI tools from Eclipse to WinCVS are the 'end user
experience' and they help guide the everyday user, so questions on
info-cvs are more about servers than clients.

Its all just speculation though.  It'd be intersting to correlate
download stats for the same period - except of course that a lot of
people obtain CVS not from the gnu web site but from a linux
distribution or whatever.
