I know very little about CVS and Subversion (which is why I didn't 
respond to your original post). But I did notice that a lot of software 
projects are using Subversion instead of CVS nowadays, including Python 
itself. So I don't have any objections against Biopython moving to 
Subversion as well (unfortunately, I cannot be very help here either).

If we are moving to Subversion though, I'd like to ask you not to make 
any changes until the next Biopython release comes out, which will be in 
about one week from now.
