Deare Developers

I've upgraded over the last month the infrastructure we used to  
develop WebTest:
we're now using the latest versions of CruiseControl, of Jira and of  

How about moving our repository to subversion? It would be nice to be  
able to
move file around without losing the file's history...

On the infrastructure side, extensions for Jira and Fisheye have to  
be installed,
cruisecontrol's build script must change to use svn instead of cvs,  
and the content
of the repository must be moved.

Is subversion desirable?
Do you think it is worth the effort?
Are there any other infrastructure tasks to do?
When would you, as a developer, have the time to change your work
