I can't figure out how to log into the blog comment page; it says my username is invalid and I can't find anywhere to sign up if it uses a different account system than the forum.

That said, I do have some comments which I'll post here in hopes that The Creator will find this:

It looks like you can convert RCS to SVN with the script described at http://www.cri.ensmp.fr/~coelho/rcs2svn.html (an actual link is at the bottom). However, I would very strongly recommend Git; I've been using SVN for a while and just recently (last week!) started using Git, and I'm already very impressed with the featureset. Basic use is very much like SVN, and the branching features make it very easy to keep track of multiple things going at once without creating a whole new branch in your repository. This is really awesome because you can avoid committing broken code to others' repositories, but still keep your work saved and switch to another project for a little while and so on. It sounds a bit scary that Git stores every revision history locally, but it's actually not that bad - I was very surprised to see that it managed to keep the LLVM repository (100k commits) within a reasonable size. If you decide to go for Git, the really amazingly all-together and helpful guys in #git on Freenode say to convert to CVS first (http://www.gigascale.org/softdevel/faq/17.html) and then to Git (http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/gitcvs-migration.html).

Either way, good luck on development! I can't wait to see the fruits of this new labor!
