Hi, just to give a different perspective. For Jikes RVM there's been no choice to use Mercurial as SourceForge don't provide it, this may actually have been no bad thing. There are lots of different version control tools, but both Mercurial and GIT support pulling and pushing to a SVN repository. Clearly using SVN with SVN isn't a problem and CVS is out-of-date anyway. So in summary, having a central repository that's an SVN repository can be a good thing as it supports the maximum number of version control tools. We have a list of different tools for working with our repository (hg, git, svn, svk, darcs, svm, rsync) and how to set them up with Jikes RVM here: http://jikesrvm.org/Using+Distributed+And+Local+Version+Control+Tools I may be talking rubbish as I'm not a version control guru.
