Getting rid of the last major (only?) remaining user of cvs.debian.org
is a large benefit. This is the last CVS repository most of us have to
deal with. It's slow. It's a special case both in using CVS and in not
being on alioth. Running the CVS pserver on gluck is an added security
exposure for Debian[1].

Bikeshedding over the VCS someone chooses to move to from CVS is, well,
