Re: Moving pkgsrc-wip away from SourceForge

It seems to me that Subversion would be a good choice. Maybe I have missed
some of the discussion but I was wondering why that does not seem to have
been considered?

One aspect of GIT is that it allows history to be changed and does not track
who made the change.

Here are two links to a presentation by CollabNet comparing Git and
Subversion. One link is to the video and the other is to the slide deck. To
me this concludes that Subversion is technically better.


Slide Deck:

I use SVN daily for all sorts of work. It works very well and is relatively
easy to understand and use.

I just wanted to add this to the discussion. Any of them is fine with me, as
would be staying with CVS.
