With sufficient hackery it could be done with either svn or cvs, however
many of our upstreams are moving or have moved to git, and there is a
strong desire for our scm to follow suit.  This really will wind up
being decided by the person putting in the work to get it done, which at
the moment is me.

The added benefit of offline operation makes git even more appealing,
and while I know you can hack svn into doing something like that, I'd
rather go with something that is designed for it.
