I guess I'm trusting our new visitor to understand the value of
sarcasm. But then again, I was trusting you to understand what I was
talking about when I said we hadn't suffered any lossage, and look
where that got me.

Tom, nobody here has any interest in discrediting you -- credit is an
earned thing, not the default state. And in my opinion, you have only
recently just begun the task of earning credit in this list (for which
you do deserve some credit -- your recent posts about merge stuffs
have been quite readable and on-topic). But you've got a lot of lost
ground to make up, and you won't do it by overlooking intent and
splitting hairs over theoretical issue (do you even *use* Subversion?).

My response to you was a touch out of line. And yeah, it's too bad
that I don't have nearly enough time to read every post on this
mailing list, even ones by you. But just because Subversion isn't
your Perfect VC System, crafted only after years and years of arduous
planning and philosophical debate, doesn't mean that it's not a viable
solution to most folks' problems, *especially* if the primary point of
contrast is the likes of CVS.

People *are* using Subversion for their projects. They're *glad* they
moved away from CVS and into something that feels like something they
know, yet works like CVS wouldn't.

So Ryan, forgive me for tainting the evidence being offered in
response to your query.  As has been noted by others, there are still
some things we lack (fully-functional cvs2svn conversion, a choice of
robust GUI clients, etc.).  And there are still bugs in the software.
But I wouldn't fret about the trustworthiness of Subversion as a
version control solution.
