I would like the history of commits to be preserved as it is sometimes
necessary to dig contributor's information [1]. Can that be easily preserved
when switching to a different CVS?

I agree that moving the documentation CVS over to Alioth will have one
advantage (adding users, no need for DSA to get involved) but I don't really
see the advantage of switching to a different VCS for the DDP's repository.



[1] And the current CVS lacks this information for some documents when they
were last moved from other CVSs into the DDP CVS.
