IIRC git was the original choice, so I'm curious why DVCS systems like
git, mercurial or even bazaar are not under consideration. I do have a
bias as I've used them more than svn but besides that there are many
features which, say, 'git' offers that subversion does not.
PS#0. This isnt intended to be a svn vs. git/other DVCS flamebait,
rather I'd trying to understand what are the merits/demerits between
svn and other DVCS.
PS#1. Dan since I've used my gmail ID, could you please unsub the
other ID. Google groups does not allow me to unsub my non-gmail id's.

Furthermore, I was thinking a bit about this and wanted to suggest
that a BioForge on the lines of Berlios would be very interesting.
Unlike, say, github or bitbucket, it runs completely on free/libre
software and supports many DVCS (mercurial, git, cvs and svn).
What do you all think? Maybe we should have this interesting
discussion on the genome-informatics list too?
