Re: Fw: Asterisk project converts to Subversion version control system

Thanks for the forward, and we hope Asterisk enjoys Subversion!

We've pretty much stopped updating the Testimonials page with every
new project that adopts Subversion now. We still do for extremely
famous projects (such as GCC recently), but that's about it. No
slight on Asterisk, of course; presence on the Testimonials page
nowadays has nothing to do with quality, only with notoriety.
