I am not familiar enough with CVS to help you implement my suggestions
using it.  I _am_ familiar enough with subversion (and perforce, if you
perhaps want to spend a few hundred dollars a head :) ) to do this stuff.

Perhaps as a first pass, I could set up a subversion repository and a trac
installation to give you a preview of how it would look.  Would it be
possible for me to get a tarball of the cvs repository for import into

Look, I'm really not trying to be an asshole.  I really, really do want to
help mythtv improve, because I believe it is a very worthwhile piece of
software.  I see issues with the development process that I have seen
other places and I am trying to offer a way to improve that process.  I
know it's not code that i'm contributing, and so it's hard to quantify how
much good I could/would do, but honestly, I do believe changing some of
the development policy on this project would improve everyone's lives.
