CodePlex and Subversion

As I've posted about before, Subversion is a great tool. It's

  • Open Source
  • Free
  • Fast
  • Easy

Rob Conery and his awesome SubSonic project are hosted on CodePlex, which uses TFS as it's backend. I'm working with TFS now (at work) and it's a great solution for the teams we have here. But, I don't think it's appropriate for the CodePlex community.

And Rob's losing contributors - something no open source team wants to happen.

So - here's my two cents. CodePlex should switch to Subversion. It's a much more appropriate source control tool (for this type of collaboration) and I'll even go out on a limb here and say that if they do switch, I'll personally see what I can do to start contributing to SubSonic.
