    We are ready to switch over to SVN. See below for details. When can 
you do this?

I have tagged the release, but the installers are coming along slowly 
and I am willing to go to SVN before that is done.

I found cvs2svn and have downloaded it. It can produce a "dump file" in 
SVN format, which can be used directly. I have created one: ~/jsword. 
This can be copied to the root svn directory and the read/write 
permissions should be the same as we have for JSword under CVS.
