Re: thoughts on self-hosting SVN

i suspect that even if subversion can be self-hosted, that doesn't
mean that there can't be a cvs server running in parallel with the
subversion server. i'm thinking that the cvs served tree is read-only,
while actual development occurs in the subversion served tree.

there could be a svn2cvs script that runs periodically to this end.
i think that it would be acceptable to say that the cvs tree is
slightly out of date (longer than 24 hours would prolly be
unacceptable). the largest problem is going to be build breakage or
crashers in the cvs served tree that get more fixed more quickly in
the subversion served tree.

anyway, i agree with daniel, that if providing svn2cvs turns out to be
painful, we can just provide automatically generated source tarballs.
