Could you give us a (smallish) 'resumé' of the difference between CVS
and subversion ? I am aware of some, but maybe not everyone is.

But also multiple people who can work on the packages.
The idea is that this would mean that the project could provide a
natural framework for sponsoring non-debian developers, a bit like the
controversial debian-mentor project, and a bit more, since it would be a
shared stuff. Maybe even some upstreams will help a bit if needed and
such. In the lond run, this could even become some sort of generalized
ocaml archive, like some are asking on the caml list, but i don't think
this is our goal.
