ACK.  I'd also appreciate it if it can be used over HTTP(S).  Sitting
behind a corporate firewall is no fun with CVS.

So, any of subversion, bazaar and git would be an improvent for me.
Others might be as well but I have no experience with them (and don't
fancy learning the ropes of yet another VCS right now).

That said, IIRC, there are a number of SANE site maintenance scripts
that assume/depend on CVS.  These would have to be ported to whatever
VCS SANE would change to.  Anyone has a list of these?  Are there any
takers for porting?

Hope this helps,
