I can add CVS to the list if there are no objections. Any other tasks to 
nominate for transfer to an antlib?

So a separate vote for these to be deprecated in the next release and 
removed in the release after that?

One other thing. I think the vote should be to move these to their own 
separate antlibs in the sandbox. That will clearly indicate that they 
are unsupported. My only concern is with the difficulty in getting them 
out of the sandbox once we have a volunteer or two to maintain them, as 
happened with VSS. I'm not sure what the answer should be for this problem.
