While I'm not currently involved with the Hurd, I do plan to change
that.  (This also means that I missed discussion on bug-hurd, since I
only read hurd-devel at the moment.)  However, I shall still only be
involved with the new Hurd, not with the Mach version.  So my opinion
should probably not count as strong.

I have experience only with cvs and svn, and I strongly prefer svn.
When I used cvs I thought it was pretty decent, but since I'm using svn
I don't want to go back.  I think using svn would be a great
improvement.  In particular, as mentioned, the atomic commit and the
ability to prepare patches without network is attractive to me.

That said, I have no opinion on using decentralised systems, since I
don't know them.  However, if they are considered the best, but it is
impractical to make the switch, going from cvs to svn would still be
well worth it IMO.
