Re: Subversion, decentralized version control, and the future.

One thing Raymond didn't touch on was the _reason_ people stayed with
CVS, in spite of all of its flaws: you could trust it not to break
your data. And here I mean break the data by itself, not through

And _that_ is where I see subversion as the only free CVS replacement
candidate: subversion can be trusted not to break your data.

I can't say I have the same feeling about the rest. Distributed or
not becomes a secondary issue.
