+<p>Subversion is an open source version control system.  Founded in
+   2000 by CollabNet, Inc., the Subversion project and software have
+   seen incredible success over the past decade.  Subversion has
+   enjoyed and continues to enjoy widespread adoption in both the open
+   source arena and the corporate world.  The project's original goal
+   of being "a compelling replacement for CVS" (an older version
+   control system with a similar model) was surpassed long ago &mdash;
+   today Subversion stands on its own highly reputable name.</p>
-<p>More information about Subversion is available on our
-   <a href="" >old website</a>.</p>
+<p>You can learn more about Subversion and its features by interacting
+   on our <a href="mailing-lists.html" >project mailing lists</a> and
+   relevant <a href="features.html" >pages</a> on this website.</a>

+<h3>2009-11-07 &mdash; Subversion joins Apache Incubator</h3>
+<p>The Subversion project has been accepted into
+   the <a href="">Apache Incubator</a>, the
+   first step on the road to becoming a full-fledged, top-level Apache
+   project.  You can read more about this exciting development in the
+   related <a href="">press
+   release</a>.</p>
+<p>Part of this transition involves migrating our project assets
+   (websites, bugs, mailing lists, etc.) over to the Apache hosting
+   infrastructure.  We'll be doing this gradually over time in order
+   to ensure a smooth transition with minimum loss of momentum.  So if
+   you can't find what you're looking for here at this website,
+   chances are good that we've not yet migrated that information yet
+   from our <a href="" >old
+   website</a>.</p>
