Re: Bug#323855: ITP: opencvs -- OpenBSD CVS implementation with special emphasis in security

Some people say it's its rotten codebase.  A rewrite from scratch
hasn't got this problem.  The RCS-based file format isn't too bad and
optimizes for some common (access to recent version) and
not-so-commonn (annotate) operations.  (Try annotate with cogito..)

I welcome a OpenCVS package, subject to two conditions: The
description should describe the virtues of the package, and not
dismiss GNU CVS as bad.  And it should not provide "cvs" unless
permanent comaptibility is a goal, including the command line
