Hi Michael,

I'm very interested in the horde project and would like very much to start 
hacking on horde, but

* CVS really pushes me back. My first VCS was allready SVN and I really don't 
want to learn a technology that's already history.

* I think that most of the changes I'd like to make[1] would not be accepted 
by the whole horde project. Nevertheless it could be usefull for the whole 
project to have another dev looking over the code and maybe some of my 
changes could go "upstream". This upstream merge is much easier with a 
distributed VCS then with CVS/SVN.

[1] Those changes are: Eliminating strict warnings, eliminating code in the 
global scope, including eZComponents for configuration, authentication and 
mail transport, only one central index.php as a dispatcher.
