Subversion support for savannah is planned in the future. And it might
make sense to adopt it then since other projects that rely on GNU
Classpath also use it and it makes merging easier. On the other hand
subversion is still a bit immature and not widely supported yet (for
example on we needed to install the latest
1.3.0rc4 to get around some network timeout issues). CVS might be old
and clumsy at times, it is much more mature and supported atm. That
said, if savannah adds subversion support I would vote for us to switch.
