Ok, I did not thought about it. Thanks.

Thank you.

Neither have I. One would need to dig into the failing tests to see
exactly what is going wrong. Maybe I'll do that, but probably from

Any argument in favor of Mercurial?

Regarding svk, the big plus is that it is compatible with Subversion
(both for import and export). So we could also have a standard
centralized repository for the occasional demexp developer. And if svk
does not work, we can fall back to svn. The minus side is that svk is
written in Perl, not very well know as good language for software
engineering (but with some efforts, you can write clean Perl and the
use of non regression tests shows that svk's developers care about
those issues). Of course, If I'm unable to have svk on my machine,
that would be a big downside for svk. ;-)

I'll probably won't move the old Arch log into the new SCM: who needs
it except for historical purpose?
