CollabNet wants to establish Subversion as the successor to CVS,
because CollabNet's product (SourceCast) has a version contol
component. That part of SourceCast is currently implemented by CVS;
but Subversion lurks, uh, subversively, in the wings.

The idea is that if people like Subversion, then they'll be that much
more comfortable with SourceCast.

I actually don't see what difference it makes (for a contributor), but
I hope the above answer helps.
