	So, I've filed a bug for moving away from CVS, and probably to


	The bug itself contains the reasoning for why we'd pick bzr,
and you should read the whole Description of that bug before making any
comments here.

	However, this is the place to talk about the proposal, since
I'm sure that somebody somewhere will have opinions about it, and
I wanted to direct them here instead of in the bug, where we
should keep things to discussing the implementation of whatever we
do. :-)

	"CVS is great and we shouldn't move away from it," is an
argument that we are probably all guaranteed to ignore. :-)

	However, I'm open to arguments that we should move to some
*other* VCS, or talking about how the move to bzr should go, or
whatever. Honestly, I really like bzr, personally, and a lot of the
Bugzilla developers have experience with it, so convincing us to go
elsewhere could be difficult, but I'm not totally close-minded on the
issue personally, and I'm sure that the rest of the team isn't either.

	Anyhow, anybody who wants to chime in (even to say "Yeah, bzr
sounds great, +1!") is welcome to do so, here. :-)
