I have only mild server side svn experience, not enough to warrant
comments.  All I can say is that I have a preference for svn, and as
far as I can tell, all those issues that people seem to have with it
have been addressed.  I know I have seen a page comparing cvs and svn,
and every single svn issue they raised was fixed in later versions.

Didn't we say at the outset that extra mirrors are a goal, and that we
should build an easy to setup mirror package of some sort?  How's that

Is it time to seek donations for our own server?

You have mentioned recently that there are bounties for coding E, can
the same source of those funds donate some cvs server resources?
