I'm not advocating a move to a different server/system, just giving thoughts.  While a move would possibly benefit us, what are some possible work arounds?  Would we be able to create a read only CVS account that we could use instead?  Is that possible?

That's a fairly harsh statement.  They do want testers, but it's out of their hands with SF running the CVS.  Yes, we could change, but I'm sure Thomas doesn't have the time to devote to changing everything over from CVS to SVN or from one server to the next.  I don't know how much time goes into it, but it can't be easy.  And without testers, nothing would get improved upon, so I'd say your statement is false.

See my previous statement...

The CVS has been down too long, and it's not just impacting you.  There are plenty of forum dwellers that really want the CVS and have noticed that commits have "stopped".  Well, it's disconcerning to tell people that the anonymous CVS has been having problems.  I say SourceForge has finally reached it's max capacity, and can't function anymore.  Yes the anon CVS is days behind usually, but 6 weeks is a bit much.

The site is separate from the CVS Repo in the first place, so hosting the site won't be necessary (from what I can tell).  I hope you feel better, and the community doesn't lose you.  We work with what we have.  And what we have is little free-time and a few issues.  The CVS works for the devs, and hearing that commits are there is really comforting.  I'd love to see the changes, but it's not exactly necessary for me.  Although I agree we should have the ability to get the new versions.
