The emphasis on CVS here is because it is used for 
Ocaml itself, for GODI itself, and also is the standard 
system on Sourceforge. That covers a lot of projects.

There may well be other systems, and perhaps GODI
can handle them at some stage. But right now
NOT having CVS access is a complete show stopper
for those people trying to collaborate developing
several libraries and synchronising them: for example
the ExtLib, Ocaml itself, the other Extlib, Camomile.

To factor these projects, stored in multiple places,
requires a fast turnaround for change propagation,
much faster than can be obtained from tarball releases.

So if you want a community structure mediated by GODI
in which to participate you're going to have to use
CVS for a while, if only to participate in upgrading
GODI to also handle Subversion and Arch or whatever :D
