I have added the btnut list, because they'd be involved too.

AFAIK the CVS history doesn't differ much from the one provided by SVN.

The ChangeLog is a kind of NEWS file with more general infos. Users may 
get a rough overview here without going into the details of the file logs.

This is possible with CVS as well, it's simply not configured. However, 
I'd prefer to have a distinct list (en-nut-commit) for this. Most 
subscribers of nut-discussion won't be interested in such posts.

Anyway, it is planned to move to Subversion. As you may have noticed, I 
no longer use $Log$ in newer files, because SVN won't support it.

The reason for not moving to Subversion so far is, that there are tons 
of other items on my list. However, if someone wants to take over this 
task, I'll support this.

We may also discuss first, if we should stay with SourceForge. The 
problem is, that SourceForge doesn't allow to download the full 
repository including all control files.
