It seems like we should add these files to the repository's CVSROOT, 
which we don't have permissions for. Even if we could add/commit these 
files, I'd be careful because I think they might affect all cvs 
projects at bioinformatics.org (although I'm not entirely sure about 
that). Can anyone confim this (you can inspect the rep. here: 

Three months ago, I switched all my personal projects to Subversion, 
which is much much better than CVS in almost every respect. Setting up 
a svn server was quite easy. On the client side svn integrates nicely 
with Xcode (1.5) and you can execute most commands by using svnX, a 
great freeware Cocoa front-end.
I'd be willing to create a BioCocoa repository but the only problem is 
that I'm afraid our university network can't be accessed from outside 
the university (SSH and other ports are closed).
