Modern technology certainly is being used today, because Barcelonans are
smart.  Didn't they finish Sagrada Familia in time for the Olympics?  I
didn't realize it was a work in progress.

Perhaps if emacs was using arch it would have 2x the contributors, since
contributions could be done without requiring CVS write access to begin
or work on significant contributions

from which can be inferred that you're saying that significant
contributions cannot be made without CVS write access. And that's Simply
Not So.

No.  This is about personal write access, the ability to commit someone
elses source to your own private repository, without losing any history.
With arch, you can pull down the source, then "commit" it locally.  You
therefore have "write access", without having to be given write access
to the main tree.  You still retain full access to your new personal
trees "history", even though it is in another repository.

Try that with CVS.  It isn't trivial, easy, or natural.

No. These are other, different concerns which with I can symphatize
enough. As I've said, I'd vote for a switch to subversion Right Now if
it were ready for prime time.

Subversion has design problems that it is unlikely to solve without
a radical rewrite.  Arch already solved these problems a year ago.



It's not true unless it makes you laugh, but you don't understand it until it makes you weep.
