Unfortunately, Subversion has two of the flaws that CVS has:

1) Merging is hard.

2) It's requires a centralized model of development that splits people
into "committers" and everyone else.  Non-committers have a much more
difficult time contributing.  Using a distributed SCM makes it much
easier for people without write access to the main repository to
contribute.
