Stephen,

You are entitled to your opinion about AccuRev and I will not attempt to change your mind, but the statements you make below are patently false.

I can guess at what company you work for as I am only aware of a single customer who has ever migrated from AccuRev to SVN, and that was at the behest of an executive who is no longer even with that company. I would encourage Bryan to continue working with the excellent resources AccuRev provides to allow them to fully evaluate AccuRev's capabilities. At that point, if it isn't for your organization, as long as you made a fair decision we support it. But please be aware that the FUD Stephen is spreading is not the experience of 99.9% of our customers, and is in fact probably caused by a lack of education and interest on their part to adopting the solution.
