I have no experience w/ it.

I rely on the merge/diff capabilities w/in Eclipse to understand other's 

I am not sure I understand the security risk. You seem to say that the 
client software has a fault that allows it to exploit permissions on the 
server. If that is the case, that is very bad.

I have sent a patch earlier regarding the build that probably should be 
applied first. I also have a few other pending changes relating to 
limbo. I have found that we are building limbo into the jars and that a 
couple of packages have classes actually being used. This may need to be 

If we do go there, I would like a practical comparision between it and 
CVS w/in Eclipse.
