Because of my travels I've forced a few projects to move from CVS to
SVN. I'm hoping that SourceForge will soon adopt (or at least enable)
SVN for its projects as well.

SVN has made travelling the world as an Open Source developer possible
- without it, I'd have had to find a new way of making a living.

Thanks for an awesome piece of work,
jas.
