Aaron pointed out in a related post that https access is the  
preferred option behind a corporate firewall (svn prompts for proxy  
user/pass, then caches it).  Not sure how Jason/Hilmar/Chris D. feel  
about https or supporting both https+ssh.

Agree; we'll need to work out specifics once we know how things work  
out using cvs2svn.  I think the idea is to test using a smaller  
distribution (maybe network or db) and move up from there.

George Hartzell is going to test it out, I believe, and will post  
something when he can.
