OpenBSD O'Reilly interviewed 27 OpenBSD developers to present the new release. They discussed buffer cache improvements, the new malloc(), the work to make the math library more C99 compliant, what is new in the SCSI area, crypto support for softraid, a lot of fundamental work happened in PF, a new tool to merge configuration files during upgrades, the status of OpenCVS, some cool features of OpenSSH 5.1, the initial support for USB webcams, the never-ending work on improving and extending the sensors framework, and more.

Except they're not simply a making feature-by-feature, bug-by-bug reimplementation of CVS. They're making a better CVS that fits their needs. They're leaving out things they consider bloat in CVS and improving the stuff they don't think works as well as it should. Basically they considered the old CVS too stagnant and too bloated, so they made a better one.
