Re: cvs2svn. And so it begins...

Just FYI, folks:

We've re-prioritized a bit, and so Mike is putting off the cvs2svn
work in order to get the svn code to M3 readiness. We simply realized
that, with Subversion this close, him suddenly leaving it and pouring
his energies into cvs2svn would be a huge momentum sink, not just for
him, but for others who are accustomed to his responsiveness about
Subversion issues. (Not to mention the tandem coding he does with Ben
and me a lot.)
