Great news Mark, thanks. I see that they are currently
in the middle of one of those open-source-going-commercial
things. They also say the free-for-open-source bit.

If only we committers installed it locally then we could each
control the state of the cvs.

I have been wondering about that. There are probably various
aspects to this. Perhaps tackle cvs in sections, warning people
as we go.

Another idea: do the whole cvs on a particular day, say on the
next FirstFriday. This would give developers plenty of warning
to clean their working copy of pending commits.
