Has any thought been given to adding subversion as an
option for source code management?

    At this time, SourceForge.net does not provide services related
    to the Subversion version control system. CVS has existed for a
    very long period of time and has reached a high level of
    maturity, ideal for many applications. Though we are aware that
    the design of CVS lacks certain types of operations that
    Subversion has been designed specifically to handle (like
    directory handling), extensive testing and analysis must be
    carried out to ensure suitability as an addition to our service
    offering. The SourceForge.net team is continuing to monitor the
    progress of Subversion (which released version 1.0 in early
    2004), its adoption for use by hosting providers and large
    repository applications, as well as documentation and client
    software. We will continue to evaluate Subversion and may
    provide Subversion services in the future.

    We also ask that you not install or configure Subversion to use
    the project shell server for your repository. The purpose of that
    system is simply to allow you to maintain your project web site,
    not for actual development (the load is already high enough).
    Please find another host for Subversion usage.

    Thank you,

    SourceForge.net Support
