Using a new VCS

This is not trivial because all of is stored and managed in CVS, 
with multiple repositories.

At a point, GNU webmasters needed the privilege to edit any CVS web repository.
However they now don't edit these repositories directly anymore, so we don't 
need to implement this requirement anymore.

This post explains how Fedora moved from CVS to Git in 2010 for their 1K 
package repositories (with shared state).
We probably can do it for too.

Such a change would require coordination with the FSF sysadmins, who run however might be moved to Savannah if necessary so we make 
changes directly to the replication process.
