I agree with you about SF. Much of their functionality isn't in use
now. We've had folks posting over there recently thinking that all
discussion about OVC was stale - only because they didn't know we use a
different list system.

I've had a CVS system up and running for quite some time at but I don't have scheduled backups or the spiffy
administrative interfaces that SF has. FYI, last time I looked you
could buy the SF software for unlimited use for only about $10k.

Gosh, sounds like we should all move back to the dev list, eh?
