I'd vote for either subversion or git.  subversion because it is
widely used (so I'd trust it not screw data) and it also seems to be
the cvs successor in the open source community.  git because it's used
to manage the linux kernel.  Quite a few of us also do kernel work, so
using the same tool for both xen and the linux kernel would be very

just by two cent,


-mm seems unusually stable at present.
