version control.  Where are we with that, etc?

I thought this was supposed to take a backburner.  It was noted that CVS _has_
some ACL stuff in place so that we can keep set permissions at a module level
(does this include release branch, since these aren't really "branches"?) and
that we don't _need_ a new SCM to accomplish the merger of core<->extras.

And if the answer is back burner for now, that's fine. I just want to make sure it is consciously on the backburner as opposed to forgotten. :-)

Personally I think a new distributed SCM would make things like downstream distributions (olpc, etc..) easier, ditto secondary arches. There were strong concerns though of changing too much too quickly and not accomplishing the major goal(s) of the merger.
