If you had time to check out EVS (previously cross-platform CVSNT 3.1)
we'd really like to hear from teams with specific performance or process
problems that they'd like to solve who are familiar with the CVS/CVSNT
and Subversion tool chains and open source development model.

EVS supports CVS/CVSNT and Subversion clients, will soon support
TeamSystem clients and in time will support Git and other clients too,
at the backend it uses an SQL database of your choice so is more
scalable as well. CVSNT has had merge tracking and promotion levels for
over 4 years so certainly the new EVS does too.

We spoke to some of the OpenOffice team at CeBit in Hannover last year,
from memory our German sales manager and one of your team had lots to
talk about. We found many of the IT Managers we spoke to at CeBit
wanted to consolidate their SCM servers and centralise management and
conmtrol but still allow developers to choose their tools/whatever is
most productive for them.

The current build of EVS currently does not run on Solaris/Sun - but
that is the next platform the commercial sponsor is targetting.
