Subversion Support Now LIVE on SourceForge

After quite a long time of announcements and speculation as to when it would happen, Sourceforge has finally gone live with their support of Subversion as a source control option for their service. Following is a clip from the SourceForge mailing list:

The team is pleased to announce the General Availability
of Subversion service to projects, effective
2006-02-21. This service offering is in addition to our existing CVS
service; as with all of our services, projects may select (and enable in
the project admin pages) the portion of our offering that best meets
their needs.

The best thing about finding this announcement was the fact that Ben Collins-Sussman, one of the developers of Subversion, posted the announcment to the Subversion developer list with the following comment:

So, are we done? Have we made a compelling replacement for CVS? 🙂

Congratulations to the Subversion team for making the original vision real. I would say the product is a pretty compelling replacement.
