Mozilla not moving to Subversion (yet)

J. Paul Reed Build/Release Engineer at the Mozilla Corporation writes:

Is the Mozilla Project switching to Subversion? There have been many discussions in the past few months about the version control system that the Mozilla project entrusts its code to. It's safe to say there's a desire from most of the community to thank CVS for taking good care of our source code - for the most part - and move into the 21st century. Obviously, such a move is a big deal, and impacts the very core of the Mozilla Project: our source code. It's not a decision to be made lightly, or by a limited subset of people. It's a project-wide discussion. The first part of these discussions has already taken place, and a set of Project's requirements for a version control system has emerged. As they wiki page notes, some of these requirements are in conflict, so they represent a utopian ideal of version control systems. But no decision has been made on which version control system to switch to, nor have any concrete plans (schedules, etc.) even been considered.
