Check out the CVS section on


My preference for hg is a personal preference, I also use git for projects that use that, and I even use subversion for a few projects that I'm not active enough on to bother creating a mercurial mirror.

Of course I agree with all of your (Rob's) arguments, and I'm sure most others as well. Don't need to keep repeating arguments I already agree with. I just think this project should deal with manpower first, and I'm RCS-neutral. I'm awfully, dreadfully sorry that I accidentally mentioned CVS in giving an opinion.

Okay then, you know, we're going around in circles. :-) This is exactly like a past discussion that ended up with me setting up the hg repository. So I did try to get this tcc onto a modern distributed RCS, and then managed to get Detlef to take over, but no commits in the past 7 months or so. Anyone care to continue that? So that's one data point. It says we need muscle.

No muscle, no results. Need'um reliable muscle first, else everything is stuck. Even the scenario where you (Rob) kindly send patches over under LGPLv2 requires muscle plus a distributed RCS. I was just trying (very carefully, knowing you are around, but obviously not carefully enough) to point out to the list that without reliable muscle, nothing is going to move.

So to keep my message simple -- what we need is action, and I think those who can take action gets to decide. Forget I ever mentioned CVS. We're beggars here, the thingy is mostly in deep freeze, and in my very humble, personal opinion, I think I would accept a bowl of plain rice instead of holding out and starve in hope of a gourmet meal. I also think opinions like mine are very cheap, thus I fervently hope for someone to step up to the plate.
