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.

To what I understand, OpenCVS is a reimplentation of CVS with better security and access control while staying compatible with the original as much as possible. At least, it's how they are advertising it. They cannot add or remove many features if they want it that way. Even if they change their minds, they are still building a new solution based on something that is obsolete.

I believe it would just be more productive to start up a new SCM.
