I seem to remember that GNOME developers have complained about CVS since
the very inception of the project, so the fact that people are using CVS
doesn't really have to mean that it's the best tool for the job.

We recently moved to svn though and that has had some fairly obvious
advantages, but also it is very demanding on disk space compared to CVS.

I don't know, but you can use rsync:// ssh:// http:// and other
protocols in addition to the native git protocol which make it easier to
access source repos from behind firewalls too.
