Just because CVS has a bug does not mean it is a good idea to
duplicate that bug in a new system, taking up the time and good will
if hundreds if not thousands of people, costing the rest of us an
unbounded amount of money that could have been spent in better ways.

The vague idea of "CVS done right" does not prove that anything
reasonably deserving that name can ever actually exist, no matter how
many times you repeat the idea, or how carefuly you lay out your
project schedule. It is an open question, by the admission of svn
developers, even after years of svn development, and in spite of a
rush to 1.0.

Those with greater patience have achieved greater success and our
discussions have suggested the needed tweaks. This is all well
documented in my archives and alluded to in yours.
