-Subversion is meant to be a better CVS, so it will have most of CVS's
-features, with as many as possible in the 1.0 release. The main exception
-is "svn blame" (i.e., "cvs annotate"), which has been put off until
-after 1.0 for scheduling reasons. Generally, Subversion's interface to
-a particular feature is similar to CVS's, except where there's a
-compelling reason to do otherwise.
+Subversion is a free/open-source version control system. That
+is, Subversion manages files and directories over time. A tree
+of files is placed into a central repository. The repository is
+much like an ordinary file server, except that it remembers every
+change ever made to your files and directories. This allows you
+to recover older versions of your data, or examine the history
+of how your data changed. In this regard, many people think of
+a version control system as a sort of time machine.
