Personally, I do not see how Subversion running on OS/400 changes 
anything.  You always have had the option of using the IFS as a network 
share and using the CVS client from Windows.  Since, I doubt you are using 
EDTF to edit the source, that would seem to make the most sense anyway.

In the short term, Subversion does not change this equation as currently 
only the server portion of Subversion is ported to OS/400.  You still have 
to use a client from another OS.  We will eventually port the client, 
there are just other items ahead of that on our agenda.  We only really 
care about the server.
