I would be much happier if libtiff was updated to use Mercurial (Hg) or Git because then every checkout would include full history and would serve as a backup of the master repository. I have a preference for Mercurial because it is easy to learn and relatively simple.
Personally I'd vote for git since that's what I use now for everything else. But yeah, cvs is looking mighty clunky, and I'm finding it takes an effort of will to remember how to use it at all. (Astonishing how quickly things that used to be wired into your fingertips can fade away.)
