If you build snapshots directly from the FSF source repositories, you
should be aware that GCC is now using the Subversion source control
system, instead of CVS.

We made this change because we believe Subversion will make it easier
for us to continue to improve GCC.

For information about using Subversion to access the GCC source code
repository, please see:

Tthis change does not affect the format for source releases and
snapshots; they will still be provided as compressed TAR files in the
usual way, and will be, for the most part, indistinguishable from the
versions generated from CVS.

Daniel Berlin deserves the credit for leading this conversion, with
assistance from a large team of volunteers.

We'd also like to thank the developers of Subversion with providing us
with such a powerful tool, and the developers of CVS for providing us
with a tool that served us so well for such a long time.
