although moving around in cvs is a pita, i dont see it being all that common in the xml subdir ... many of the other benefits that svn has over cvs (branching and changesets) just isnt that useful in terms of website management imo ... also, although i cant comment on this directly, i imagine that all the infrastructure we have in place (automated QA checks, cvs->website nodes, etc...) would be a pain to change over too ... -mike -- gentoo-doc@g.o mailing list
