[geeklog-devel] Upgrade CVS to a distributed repository

SVN & CVS both have Tortoise support (TortoiseCVS and TortoiseSVN) which are
both great and unobtrusive us windoze people. :)

I'd suggest we just stick with CVS since 99.9% of us only have permission to
fetch the code anyway.
SVN's terrible at managing merges between branches, but other than that,
it's quite nice.

SVN is just a better version of CVS really. The windows clients are
more mature and much nicer than the CVS alternatives. The server runs
flawlessly. The features are slightly different but a bit "better"
than CVS. I've been using SVN extensively at work with a team of 60
for nearly 2 years now. Plus a lot of work using CVS outside of work.
I'd go with SVN anytime now.
