Well, if the new emc2 version is to be transfered from a cvs repo to an 
svn repo, then I'm in favor of enough of a svn kit to be able to keep 
it up2date.  As to what to drop, I'm not familiar enough to have any 
really good, this could go, ideas.  As long as apt-get is there, 
though, much of the rest of my concerns are only an ethernet cable 
away.  I was disappointed that vim wasn't included in 4.30, but thats 
fixable so its just me mewling about it at the end of the day.

I just wasn't aware that svn was being considered for the repo tool.  
My experience with it has been positive though.

I hope you all had a merry Christmas, and will have a happy and 
prosperous new year.

stupid bounce rules.  I do use spamassassin too. :-)
