I think now would be a good time to give Monotone a try. Ethan suggested
using tailor to copy the trunk to SVN, so that "casual developers"/"itch
scratchers"/whatever-you-want-to-call-them don't have to checkout the
entire revision history. That sounds reasonable to me.
=46rom my talk with a couple Monotone developers, I became pretty excited
about Monotone with respect to the potential for workflow enhancements
in the future. Also from what I gather, Subversion is aiming to be just
CVS++. While that's enough in a lot of scenarios, I think we could gain
something from a distributed VCS.
