Wow - this looks really good :)

The main criticism I have from a developer point of view is, well, CVS. 
Enough said. Please please can we have an official git mirror? It makes 
maintaining out-of-tree patches so much easier in the long run, and 
therefore much more likely that we can pass the patches back upstream.

(On a separate note, if I go to Downloads -> Getting Started and click 
on the "AnonymousCVS" wiki link then I get redirected back to the front 
page rather than to a page giving information on how to access CVS)
