Good stuff! Now all I need to do is convince my lab to install SVN so that I can play around with it....

Well if they use CVS, then i suggest you do what I did. Install it on your machine first, then show/demo it to everyone who will sit still long enough to listen. I have found very few CVS users or administrators who dont immediately see the superiority of Subversion.

Of course, I am in the workplace, not the university, so you may not have the same freedom to install software. However, if you really just want to play around with it, then just install it, its pretty painless (I have done it on Linux, Windows and OS X with little trouble) and you don't need a seperate server if you dont want to.
