This is old, as it doesn't include the SCM of choice for a few big
projects like the Linux kernel or the Wine project, called "git" - which
is among those discussed for an eventual (if even wanted/needed)
replacement at mozilla.org
For most uses, cvs is still the best and most simple choice though, esp.
taken from a storage standpoint, where cvs is fairly easy to manage,
having distict ,rv files for every files in the repository and the
repository dir structure exactly mirroring the project dir structure. Of
course, this comes with the known deficiencies of cvs as well.
Still, mozilla.org will stay with cvs for quite a while (while keeping
to think about possible - if needed - alternatives), and tools like
bonsai and lxr will only support this one SCM until people contribute
patches to change the situation.
