Do you know how it compares to Subversion or p4? What is its maturity?

I've recently started using Subversion at work and like it a lot. It's
very much like p4, but better. It's very similar to CVS, except that you
can move and copy files and directories with ease and with preservation
of history; you can perform a lot of operations directly on the
repository with URLs. Because operations are atomic and a single log
message applies to a group of files, I've found that the ChangeLog has
become obsolete. A "svn log" on the root directory provides the same

But this is all a bit off-topic since we're sort of limited to what
Savannah provides.
