Within my own company, the choice of version control software is fraught with religious fervor. So, I apologize in advance if my opinions gore anyone's ox!

I hate CVS. Even worse, I hate dealing with patches when I (quite rightly in most cases) don't have commit access.

Would you all consider enabling at least one of git/Mercurial/bazaar on the SourceForge project? This page (under SCM Services) has links to instruction on how to enable support.

Just while I'm thinking about it, why is the bug list split between forum items and SourceForge's tracker?

As far as I understood it, everything comes through here anyway.
Sent Kestas a few requested changes, but tbh I don't think the CVS has ever been used for anything - and not even sure its up to date. Use the bundle linked from this board

OK, when I am ready to make edits, I'll submit patches to whatever bundle is the latest.

I really am trying to avoid being the sort of promise-to-contribute person who initially just blusters about what they don't like about project organization. However, I feel compelled to mention that not having a source repository that reflects all the changes as far back as possible can make understanding the code very difficult!

I spend a lot of time doing code archaeology to a) understand what the hell I'm doing and b) to make sure I'm not reintroducing some previously fixed bug!

I won't add any further observations until I've actually contributed something, at which point I'll ping kestas directly with my ideas.

Almost everything that's been done over the last 3 years is documented on here somewhere.

Any thoughts what you'd like to work on?

General performance, possibly some on server-side, but mostly database side, which is my area of expertise.

I'll have some suggestions for how to collaborate more effectively, but I'd prefer to share those as an insider with credibility rather than as a know-it-all outsider.
