Since Subversion was designed by very experienced CVS users and
developers, many it's weaknesses don't exist in Subversion. But it
also is not perfect:

- Only centralized repositories
- online repository replication only with third-party tools
- no possibility to sign files, check-ins or changesets
- missing integration with bug reporting tool or workflow manager
   (third-party available?)

If you have _really_ big projects - like the Linux kernel - it may be
better to use a version control system like Bitkeeper or GIT. But for
most small or medium sized projects Subversion is a really good
