Yes, that *was* correct, and the replacement of CVS by Mercurial was a
long-term project. But anonscm.debian.org only works for anonymous
checkouts and updates. There is no working replacement for
cvs.alioth.debian.org (the old domain for r/w CVS), and it seems that
Debian is not going to do anything about that. So the transition to
Mercurial became pretty urgent.

Not at all, it's just that the messages from Mats and me crossed in
the mail so maybe it looks like we're more sensitive than we are.
And in any case, we consider SXEmacs a very friendly fork and we'd
like to keep it that way.
