don't take it badly, but, do you really think that taking a comparison

anyway I think most of us (at least those who spoke tonight) prefer
subversion because it is cvs-like in the spirit. (and actually I don't
see the point of using decentralised stuff but that's just my opinion ...)
Moreover, if i understood correctly (did I ?) you can use svk on top of
subversion so people wanting a decentralised repos can use it too while
others use the main repository directly (though it may not be much
reliable yet according to the FAQ of svk but maybe we could help making
it better)
