[elephant-devel] cvs vs svn vs darcs

For those of us that don't know cvs and don't want to learn svn,
here is a way I use to convert elephant cvs to darcs. 
I don't want to start a flamewar, but is there a reason to switch to
subversion rather than darcs? 

There is a way to run Trac with darcs, which I believe is already set up
on common-lisp.net: http://progetti.arstecnica.it/trac+darcs

Now I'll start testing the new code, hope I can help with some issues.

Get the tailor python script here:
darcs get http://darcs.arstecnica.it/tailor/

Make a file elephant-cvs-darcs.tailor like below, and
tailor elephant-cvs-darcs.tailor
Just run it again to get the latest cvs changes.

# For syncing cvs elephant to local darcs
verbose = True

target = darcs:target
start-revision = INITIAL
root-directory = .
state-file = tailor.state
source = cvs:source

subdir = darcs

module = elephant
repository= :pserver:anonymous:anonymous at common-lisp.net:/project/elephant/cvsroot
subdir = originalcvs
