Brian W. Fitzpatrick writes "To quote from the open
letter: 'Since Linus Torvalds' decision to stop using BitKeeper
for the Linux kernel...a number of people have suggested Subversion as
a possible replacement version control system. Linus himself has said
he doesn't want to switch to Subversion...We, the Subversion
development team, would like to explain why we agree that Subversion
would not be the right choice for the Linux kernel.'"
