[Controversial] Developper only CVS sandbox

I've strongly opposed to using ClearCase for Wine development :-)

I'm also somewhat opposed to CVS.  The big problem with CVS is
that it makes it *too* easy to contribute changes, and too
hard to disentangle changes later when trying to contribute
them back to the main tree.  (This kind of thing has caused
huge nightmares in the past.)

So all you folks that feel that creating and posting patches is hard --
the payoff is *each change is much easier to peer review*.
That makes for much higher quality code!

If you really want to use a CVS-like system, go have a look
at Bitkeeper.  It's free for open source projects, and it
is the only source code control system that doesn't
make it hard to disentangle changes later.
