There have been some off list discussions with the OBF guys who look
after all the servers etc about the logistics doing the migration, and
when might suite them.  Having all the OBF projects moved from CVS to
SVN will make life easier for them (BioPerl etc have already moved).
I was actually about to chase that up...

I guess that was some 3rd party, I don't recall this being discussed here.

In terms of other tools, several people here are interested in git,
and git and SVN can be made to work together.  Hopefully getting
Biopython from CVS to SVN will make things easier for them.
