Unless... they're not the maintainer of the repository.  Sometimes you
have to use cvs, and some people prefer cvs.  I think you're hard
pressed to justify using subversion over cvs either, since they're
mostly identically the same in functionality.

As for a cvs application, uhhh, I'll pick one :  viewcvs is pretty nice.
