  I don't see any doc explaining that.

  Easy, good, now how ?
For example I have scripts building cvs checkout tarball automated on
crontab, how am I gonna do this with the new software without possible
authentication ? How are people using the Windows platform be able to
use it ? Same for MacOS ? Will we still have the equivalent of anonymous
checkouts ? What is the equivalent operation of the usual CVS commands that
the people use now ?
At this point I'm just wondering how many of my contributors on my project
I'm gonna loose instantly, and I don't find this fun at all whatever the
problems some of you may have w.r.t. CVS, it's hard for me to feel happy
about this plan.
