Just my two pence as an outsider, but shouldn't you be perhaps be discussing the provider first?

Data loss on this scale is simply breath-taking to me as a professional. What the hell kind of backup regime were savannah running that they couldn't at least restore a recent backup in a timely manner?

I'm 100% for GNU-friendly providers for this project, but surely there are other GNU-friendly providers you can consider, since savannah has failed so egregiously?

As I said, just my two pence,

I have a simple philosophy. Don't fix what's not broken.

Obviously you are not a programmer :)

I hope that you are not going to kill Linus. :D

hg is an another good choice,  too.
I do not know much about it.

(e.g. moving around files and keeping a sensible log),
git mv and git log are not good enough for you?
git bisect is a great tool. check it out.
git cvsimport let you import CVS controlled code very easily.

Yes, there is a migration cost, you have to learn if you don't know them.

Hi all,

the cvs repository has been restored on savannah. It is from a May 27 backup which matches what I have locally. Feel free to test it, and commit to it.

As for moving to a different kind of VCS: I've looked a bit on git, and I don't think it is for us right now. Possibly git has some advantages over svn that I'm not aware of, but I believe subversion can do what we want (e.g. moving around files and keeping a sensible log), and more importantly the subversion clients are much better and more complete than the git ones.

As for moving to an alternative to savannah: while the service that savannah provides isn't 100% in quality, I still feel that they have been reasonably reliable and sufficient for our needs, and I know of no other service that
follows the GNU philosophy to the degree that savannah does.
