Versioning component:Which vnsiroeing component to use for the project. The choices are CVS, and SCM (based on Subversion). I understand your desire for a migration path. It is a big topic that we are discussing within both CollabNet and teams. (And yes, Brian is certainly part of the discussion.Feel free to contact him if you like. )Thanks for the clarification. :-)Helen Site Manager
