TeX Live, the long-standing compilation of everything for TeX, moved from
Perforce to Subversion.  The big complaint has been poor performance for
checking in/out via internet, but TL is big and some of the maintainers are
using older laptops (and very few run Win32).  I don't think they carried over
all the revision history, just started from a current snapshot of the
old repository.
