I'm sure you are aware about the fantastic product you people have
built, but I'd like to tell you a little story which should give new
users some comfort about it.

Here in Conectiva we used to maintain our packages in a file based
system, storing the latest SRPM packages, and also some old
versions in case something bad happened. For a long time we wanted
to build some system which would make our life easier in the daily
work, and at the same time would give us some flexibility accessing
historic information.

Shortening the history a lot, 1 year and 6 months ago, the first
revision was committed into our repository:

% svn log https://svn.distro.conectiva/repos/cnc -r 1
------------------------------------------------------------------------
r1 | niemeyer | 2002-08-27 17:12:04 -0300 (Tue, 27 Aug 2002) | 1 line

Created basic structure.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Since then, 5 complete Conectiva Linux distributions were committed
into the repository, and every single update in the distribution is
done using Subversion. We've already surpassed 50000 revisions, in
a 30GB repository. Even though we have had space, memory, and other
kinds of problems around the repository, I'm proud to say we have
never lost a single bit of information since then.

Based on this, the least I could do is sending a big THANK YOU for
everyone involved in the project.
