We're probably going to be switching the Twisted code repository to 
Subversion during the PyCon sprints (some time between saturday and 
tuesday). There will be a short period during conversion when neither 
CVS nor SVN will be accessible. I'm going to disable the CVS repository 
so nobody can commit while I'm converting it, run cvs2svn on it, and 
create a new repository at /svn/Twisted.

I might not convert tags and branches from the CVS repo to their SVN 
counterparts; last time I tried with a test-run it seemed to either take 
an incredibly long time or it was stuck, and I cancelled it. However, 
that's not too big of a deal; the old CVS repository will still be 
accessible read-only, so people will still be able to check out old tags 
and branches. Of course all old *revisions* will be converted to the SVN 

After this I'll be working on updating our release scripts and all info 
that references the CVS server. The SVN repository will be accessible 
from the web (and, in fact, our other SVN projects are already 
accessible) at http://cvs.twistedmatrix.com/cvs/. People with write 
access will use the SVN URL 

The twisted-commits list will continue working. I still need to figure 
out what to do about IRC notification of commits. I might set up a 
CIA[1] server, or just use their central server.

I wrote SVN support for buildbot a while ago, so I'll get it set up so 
our SVN commits trigger our buildbot[2].

Did I forget anything?
