I'm introduced SVN at the place where I'm currently working, and I'm quite
happy with it. Especially the windows client, TortoiseSVN, is a really cool
piece of software. I don't know if there is a similar thing for Linux but I
sure hope so. Importing CVS archives is a snap using cvs2svn.

So yes, I've already thought about a change myself. Converting the build
script is rather easy - it does nothing more than checking if there are
changes between now and the time of the last run. If there are changes, it
checks out the complete head branch and starts the build. The two CVS
operations are easy to "translate" into SVN. So let's see what happens:-)
