While I agree with Marco that we currently don't really need a common
repository, I think we might need one in the future. IF we agree on a
certain path of operation. Until then, I can easily provide subversion
repositories (publicly accessible, readable only to the maintainer/s)
for anyone who needs one.

I would decline to work with CVS because it doesn't even provide proper
changesets. I have no experience (worth mentioning) with bazaar, but
from what I did try, I don't really like it all that much. So my own
preference is subversion.
