I think the cvs-* lists are fine.

I'm not sure yet!  So far I haven't used it in anger enough, though as
Duncan points out it's hard to really use it until we can commit darcs
changes using darcs.

Certainly performance of the --partial tree seems good enough, though I
don't like that I can't see the history for individual files.  I can't
get browsing to work using Trac: with the full darcs repository it takes
too long to do anything (like 10 seconds to bring up a directory), and
with the --partial one it can't browse propely, presumably because there
isn't per-file history.
