Subject Re: Call for opinions : How to proceed with the CVS branches

Hi Thomas,

What you are proposing sounds good to me and all the better if you have 
the cycles available to do it.

It would certainly be good to get Henning's take on this also as I am 
unsure of his thoughts on the work Martin started in HEAD and of the 
impact of the migration to Subversion.
