No, sorry.

I currently used Subversion, after being disappointed with the usability
of CVS. Somehow everything works in SVN as it should have in CVS - I
mean, what I disliked about CVS, or found counter-intuitive, is
different with SVN.

Disclaimer: I've only used it for a "small scale" driver port and
platform port project.

But it seems to do quite well and I'm more efficient with it than with CVS.

With kind regards,
