Does anyone else find it depressing that Subversion seems to have had a real shelf life of only about
CVS sucked, but lasted like two decades. Now Subversion has come and is rapidly going away again.
I have no point here and I'm not trying to blame anybody for it (well arguably the SVN developers
simply aimed too low, but whatever). I just find it a little sad to think of all the work that must have
been put into the various projects that switched from CVS to Subversion, and I find myself
wondering if they could've avoided the intermediate step and just stuck with CVS for another few
years until Git/Bzr/Hg showed up.
Of course even if that were true there's no way anyone could've really foreseen how things
unfolded, but still. Just seems like a big waste of time.
