Please define the problem you have with the current CVS setup
and explain how this is fixed with using Subversion. A move just
because you like svn more than cvs doesn't sound right to me. Fwiw.

This requires active pages, which until now is not supported since we
depend on static HTML files.
Re modern design and stuff: Please define problems with the current design
and propose improvements. This has been asked all volunteers who wanted
to apply a complete redesign of the web pages. The smaller the changes
the easier they can be applied and the more likely it will be that they
will be accepted.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
