I don't quite think it's time to switch over just yet.
The argument about apache not being a requirement is bogus. At least if you want it to be used with eclipse. Subclipse only supports the http protocol. If I wasn't running a web server on my repository server already, I'd run apache with no problem, but as it is I can't. So no eclipse. The authentication mecanics seems a little screwy as well, ie they are the same as cvs but without the passwords being stored in an encrypted fashion. svnserve really seems like an after thought. I do like the conversion from cvs though. I'll give it a try when when the support tools are better developed.
