I know svn has real advantages over cvs, and converting the server takes only
Have also the other issues been considered ?
-is svn now actually fast enough ? From previous mails it seems it's
significantly slower than cvs. Is this true ?
-is it mature enough ? (the segfault, the problems you found during testing,
and the time the switch will consume:
every developer has to:
-find out its cvs password again (0..X h), how ?
-learn to use svn ( 1 h )
-recheckout everything ( > 2 h), not everybody has >= DSL
-recompile everything ( > 4 h)
