I've never seen any and I'm rather skeptiical. Never heard you mention
them before either so it hardly sounds like you're "pushing" for them.
If you are, could you give us a detailed argument of why they're good,
i.e. why they're better than svn in some ways and why they're not

As for the original question about svn, conversion to svn will be made
after the new server is up. MPlayer is being converted first to make
sure everything goes well (since it doesn't affect other projects) and
hopefully ffmpeg will follow soon afterward. It may be a little late
to try to convince people to use something else in but if you have
good reasons we might as well hear em.
