In a recent interview in the Eclipse Special of Java Magazin (Germany),
Erich Gamma mentioned something like "the conversion to CVS was
surprisingly easy."

I'm embroiled in a heated discussion with the leadership of my current
project, being developed in XDE (Rational Rose duct-taped on to Eclipse)
using ClearCase + UCM for source code management. Needless to say,
especially ClearCase gives us pains every day.

My project lead says: "I don't hear any stories about people doing great
things successfully with CVS. Get someone to tell me about such an
experience, and I'd consider thinking it over."

IDEALLY, I'd love to get a quotable but more detailed quote from Erich
himself; the leader of the Gang of Four enjoys great respect even among
Heavy Methodologists. Would bribery work on him? :) But I'd also be most
grateful to anyone else able to give me a positive testimonial about the
use of CVS, especially in a Java project with distributed programmers
totalling more than 10 people. Can anyone here speak for/about the
Eclipse project?
