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.
