    Actually it is proposed to happen in < 11 months (Jan 1, 2006).

    My biggest concern is the lack of an equivalent to
cvswrappers.  At least in Batik we have a large number of
"binary" files - reference/asset images.  It doesn't appear
that in SVN you can have them automatically treated as binary
you must manually update the SVN properties for each file.

    This isn't a huge issue for the initial import but it means that
whenever a new file is added the committer must remember to tag
it as binary - which in my experience won't happen 75% of the
time. :(

    I'll also have to update our nightly source dist script to
work with SVN.
