Hi Eric,

I think I have said it before, but I believe it is worth saying again:
Emacs repository will be moved from CVS to Bazaar. And since CEDET is
going to be included in Emacs you will most likely be using Bazaar
after that.

Alex, as I said before I do not know much at all about version control
system. However even from my limited understanding of this I still
can't find room for arguments for using something else than Bazaar for
CEDET. Will not using something else than Bazaar put an extra burdon
on Eric? And I guess that is what we all want to avoid ... ;-)

I am CC-ing Emacs Devel because there are people who understands this
much better than I do.
