no edit summary
=== Pro Subversion ===
* Support for versioned renames/moves (impossible with CVS): Fingolfin
* Supports directories natively: It's possible to remove them, and they are versioned: Fingolfin
* File properties are versioned; no more "executable bit" hell: Fingolfin
* Overall revision number makes build versioning and regression testing much easier: Ender, Fingolfin
* Atomic commits: Fingolfin
* Easier hook scripts (pre/post commit, etc): SumthinWicked (I use it for Doxygen after commits)
* Prevents accidental committing of conflicted files: Salty-horse, Fingolfin
* Support for custom 'diff' command: Fingolfin
=== Pro CVS ===
* Lots of people know how to use it: Fingolfin
* Lots of documentation available: Fingolfin
 
=== Contra Subversion ===
=== Contra CVS ===
* No support for versioned renames/moves (CVS repos hackery is not even remotely a replacement): Fingolfin
* No proper support for directories (in particular, deleting them, but also renames/moves): Fingolfin
*
