The day has finally come ? FreeBSD is using Subversion instead of
CVS for the base source tree! Congratulations to everyone involved,
especially Peter Wemm :)
The conversion is still an ongoing process, so it's not something
'done'. Having said that, it's certainly true that Peter deserves
everyone's congratulations for his persistence in making this happen,
and all his efforts :)
Does he? I'm still not sure that despite the hype subversion is actually
substantially better. The code base is new where CVS's is pretty stable,
things they could've improved they just ``forgot'' to add to the design,
and I hear they recently swapped backends because of performance and
data integrity problems.
So, I'm not sure it doesn't suffer from second system effect and that
this isn't a lot of effort for the sake of hype after all. subversion
has seen more than its fair share of hype, often from people who didn't
know how to correctly use CVS in the first place.
Without having read that blog, I do wonder about perforce.
Oh, and to the OP: do something about your line lengths please, even if
you insist on using an anonymous remailer. As to that: Those tend to be
killfiled due to troll abuse -- there are better ways to keep your name
out of the limelight on usenet.
