> what's the checklist of TODOs to handle before dumping CVS?

I'm in favor of migration, but have all of the client tools caught up?  Have
the Eclipse plug-ins caught up with current Eclipse?

FWIW, there are projects already using it, including:

  - James jSieve
  - Depot
  - Directory
  - SpamAssassin
  - Commons serf
  - Xerces-p

and every project that *has* switch raves about how great it is to be freed
of the problems of CVS.  Other projects have talked about using it, but
despite the clear benefits, even to their specific needs, they are afraid of
the unknown.

Is SVN being proposed for Incubation?  I hadn't heard.

Sounds like Fitz is working to get out the last kinks in cvs2svn.py, which
will be a good thing.

Probably lack of HTTPS, which has since been corrected.

Just run svnpasswd.
