If it makes no difference to me as an end-user, I won't mind. But I 
won't want to enter my password even once, at the beginning of a 
session. If that's not possible with https, then ssh should be an option 
as well.


Unrelated, but it randomly just occurred to me: what happens to all the 
id lines at the top of modules? Eg:

$Id: bl2seq.pm,v 1.28 2007/06/14 14:16:10 sendu Exp $

That's a cvs-specific thing, right? Do we delete them all? (Regardless, 
I wish we would, since they caused me no end of hassles during the 1.5.2 
release, doing updates across branches.)

Well, I don't think hard decisions are possible until we know how its 
going to work in practice. I tried setting up my own svn repository 
once, but didn't keep it and can't remember much about it.

So, I suppose we'll play it by ear and decide things later. Is someone 
out there actively doing something leading toward a demonstration of how 
it will be?
