So I've been going through the alternatives. BitKeeper is "problematic" (mostly: incompatible with working with open source organizations). CVS has a huge raft of technical problems. We've thought about open-sourcing TeamWare, but there would be a lot of engineering effort required to bring it into the modern world and run on many different platforms. SubVersion+svk is looking interesting, but it's hard to tell how well it works under fire at scale.
I'd love to hear from folks who have used SubVersion (with or without svk) for multi-million-line code bases with thousands of versions.
