[Bioperl-l] Anything up with cvs/svn?

I think we are still migrating to svn. It's probably better to wait  
for the announcement that everything is ready to go. (And then cvs  
won't work anymore except for anonymous checkout - which should  
actually continue to work while this is in progress. Have you tried  
that?)
