I am cross-posting this to the 'dev' and 'process' lists at Mitch's
suggestion. It was part of a longer summary of the types of
infrastructure both the community and OSAF core developers need.

Mitch also confirmed that the OSAF currently intended to use CVS.

Source Code Revision Control 

I'll let others more qualified than myself discuss their relative
merits, but there seem to be three contenders for this piece of

* CVS - http://www.cvshome.org/

* Subversion - http://subversion.tigris.org/

* arch - http://www.fifthvision.net/open/bin/view/Arch/WebHome

Comparison chart (seemingly slanted towards arch): 


One thing I would recommend regardless of the source control solution is
several 'announce' mailing lists specifically for source code checkin
