I agree. I cannot say anything about subversion vs. arch vs. whatever,
but a move to something more modern than cvs is surely a good thing.

Fortunately, I have lots of GB of free space now...

Yes, that's a good argument, too.
Can you point me to any good howto "subversion for former cvs users"?
I guess we would start the svn repository completely from scratch,
right? We should probably have a copy of the sarge version in it, but
then, for tetex-base, there's the problem of the directory move. I
guess there isn't a "nice" solution for this?
