Stefan Arentz, the person who's upgrading the GForge version for our  
projects site, likes to know if we don't want to switch to Subversion  

Now, before all techie wizzkids here start jumping on the topic, I'd  
like to see a couple of things sorted out, especially to prevent  
adopting a system that's not supported well.

- is the migration from CVS to Subversion 100% noob resistant? This  
means that doing a checkout, an update, a diff and a commit is just as  
simple as before?
- does it require additional software to be installed locally?
- are here *active* members of the current developers team experienced  
with it, and also at admin level for Subversion?
- can anyone simply tell me what - for our daily coding practice -  
Subversion would offer extra?
