Hi all,

Over the next weeks (until Christmas) BioJava will finally move the  
version control system from
CVS to Subversion (svn). This is happening in parallel to the other  
open-bio projects. We will
ensure that nothing gets lost during this migration. This means that  
all Biojava modules, branches,
tags and the history of the files will be imported into the new  

  Over the next weeks we will

A) Test the migration procedure to ensure nothing gets lost
B) We will declare a CVS freeze at some point, giving all developers  
enough time to commit the latest code to CVS.
C) After the freeze the final svn migration will happen. At this  
point we will also do a quick BioJava release (version 1.5.1)
D) From that moment on all future Biojava development will happen via  
svn, CVS will remain frozen.

Detailed instructions for how to check out and commit code using svn  
will be announced closer to the migration date.

We will keep you informed about the details of these ongoings. There  
is also a wiki page which provides documentation for this:
