No -- the CVS to SVN switch was well before this incident.  That
happened well before I even became a committer.

There were a lot of end-user affecting changes happening around that
time, but they were mostly to do with the ports shifting from the old
pkg_tools over to pkg(8).  That changeover needed a lot of modifications
to the ports, made more complicated by our having to maintain
compatibility with pkg_tools for a number of older releases.

In fact, there are a number of changes that have been planned for the
ports which haven't happened yet, as they've been suspended while the
work to package the base system is taking the lead.

	Cheers,

	Matthew
