I've not played much with CVS.. I've used RCS a little, where I have individual 
files I want to keep 
under revision control (.cshrc scripts/ and licence files)
After doing some research on the subject, the newer features in subversion 
(atomic commits, binary diffs)
had me convinced I'd move to that eventually. My sysadmin had standardized on 
CVS, but gave me access to only
one CVS project.. SVN has a standalone capability and was included on one 
machine we had RH4 installed on. so I started
experimenting with creating new projects in svn, and then I never looked back. 
Turned out no-one else had really latched onto CVS yet either, so our last CVS 
server got taken off line yesterday.
While SVN has its own server capability, it can also integrate with Apache to 
allow repository browsing and checkout from
the internet.. those with the right permissions can commit their changes back 
as well. so don't waste your time trying to integrate RCS with a web interface.

I'll also suggest that we setup a trac wiki/bug tracker for the project.
Are you coming out a couple day's before BMAS? Maybe I have someone who can 
help set up that infrastructure.
