I've often just avoided working with a project based on its choice of
version control -- if lwip had been in Mercurial I wouldn't have tried
it. Life's just too short. Not that my contributions so far have been
massive, mind you.
Same with me. I have been able to avoid anyhing except CVS and SVN so far. Not that I am strictly against mercurial (or git), but although I hate the idealistic discussion about different versioning systems nearly as much as I hate the discussion about the best OS, I fear we risk 'loosing' new users if we change to a version system that isn't as widespread as CVS or SVN (sorry to offend linux hackers ;-).
Git does the job, well. It took a while to get Windows support, but even
Hey, does anyone talk about MacOS -> GUI??

Although CVS is definitively not my first decision, I'd rather stick to it unless there's a real reason to change it (or we all want to change to the same).
