 <h2>Getting Involved with BLFS</h2>
 	<p>A common question on the mailing lists is: "How do I get involved?". Therefore, we wrote this page to try and answer that question for people.</p>
 	<p>The first thing which we suggest you do is to <a href="../mail.html">subscribe</a> to the blfs-book and blfs-dev mailing lists. blfs-dev contains discussion on the book while blfs-book recieves information on all <a href="http://blfs-bugs.linuxfromscratch.org">bugzilla</a> traffic associated with BLFS.</p>
-    <p>You need to install <a href="http://www.cvshome.org">CVS</a> on your computer to really be able to help out with BLFS. Naturally, the best way to do this is by following the <a href="view/stable/basicnet/cvs.html">instructions</a> in the BLFS book itself! You can then check out the XML source to the book using the following commands:</p>
-		<code>cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.linuxfromscratch.org:/home/cvsroot checkout BLFS</code>
+    <p>You need to install <a href="http://subversion.tigris.org">SVN</a> on your computer to really be able to help out with BLFS. Naturally, the best way to do this is by following the <a href="view/cvs/basicnet/subversion.html">instructions</a> in the BLFS book itself! You can then check out the XML source to the book using the following commands:</p>
+		<code>svn co svn://svn.linuxfromscratch.org/BLFS/trunk BLFS</code>
 	<p>The procedure above will get the BLFS tree. When you wish to update your tree, simply do:</p>
-		<code>cvs update</code>
+		<code>svn up</code>
 	<p>while in the BLFS directory.</p>
 	<p>Information on converting the book from XML into HTML format can be found in the INSTALL and README files. You will need to install openjade, docbook XML DTDs and dsssl stylesheets for this to work. Full information is in the INSTALL file.</p>
 	<p>Once you have familiarised yourself with the book layout, have a look at our <a href="http://blfs-bugs.linuxfromscratch.org" title="BLFS Bugzilla">bugzilla system</a>. If there is something in there which takes your fancy, create yourself a bugzilla account and accept it.</p>

     <p>The stable branch is always the latest released version of LFS and features a relatively bug-free, well-tested set of packages, clear instructions and an excellent educational experience. It does not necessarily have the latest released packages and it is strictly in maintenance mode, meaning that only severe errors or security fixes will be added. A stable release has generally two numbers, eg. 4.0 or 5.1. A third number is added for releases announced a few days after a previous one to fix minor bugs and typos, eg. 5.1.1.</p>
 	<p>We always recommend the stable release if you want a good foundation to build your own Linux system or if you want the best learning experience possible.</p>
 	<p>The current stable branch is b5_1. It can be <a href="downloads/stable/">downloaded in HTML, text, PDF and XML</a> form. You can also <a
-href="view/stable/">read it online</a>. To download it directly from CVS, enter the following command:</p>
-	<p><code>cvs -z9 -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.linuxfromscratch.org:/home/cvsroot checkout -r b5_1 LFS</code></p>
+href="view/stable/">read it online</a>. To download it directly from SVN, enter the following command:</p>
+	<p><code>svn co svn://svn.linuxfromscratch.org/LFS/branches/b5_1 LFS</code></p>
 	<p>The mailing list which belongs to the stable branch is lfs-support. Release information as well as a list of translations can be found at the <a href="stable.html">LFS releases page</a>.</p>
 
 	<h3>Testing</h3>
 	<p>Just like Debian, our testing branch is relatively stable but not bug-free. It hasn't received as much testing as a stable branch, although a lot of people use it regularly for staying up-to-date with the latest packages.</p>
 	<p>The testing branch is not recommended for regular users or people who are new to LFS. The more experienced LFS-builders and LFS-developers however will probably have a lot of fun with it!</p>
-	<p>The current testing branch is b6_0. To download it from CVS, enter the following command:</p>
-	<p><code>cvs -z9 -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.linuxfromscratch.org:/home/cvsroot checkout -r b6_0 LFS</code></p>
+	<p>The current testing branch is b6_0. To download it from SVN, enter the following command:</p>
+	<p><code>svn co svn://svn.linuxfromscratch.org/LFS/branches/testing LFS</code></p>
 	<p>The mailing list which belongs to the testing branch is lfs-dev.</p>
 
 	<h3>Unstable</h3>
     <p>The unstable branch is a bleeding-edge, developers-only branch. It is not suited for any purpose except as a testing ground for LFS developers where they can try experimental instructions, bleeding-edge (eg. beta) software packages etc. While periods of relative stability may occur when working towards inclusion in the testing branch, the only people who are recommended to use this branch are seasoned LFS'-ers and veteran Linux users willing to break their systems.</p>
 	<p>A daily snapshot from the unstable branch can be downloaded from <a href="downloads/unstable/">downloads/unstable/</a>. You can also <a href="view/unstable/">read it online</a>. The mailinglist which belongs to the unstable branch is lfs-hackers.</p>
-	<p>The unstable branch is HEAD and is designated to become 6.1. To download it from CVS, enter the following command:</p>
-	<p><code>cvs -z9 -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.linuxfromscratch.org:/home/cvsroot checkout LFS</code></p>
+	<p>To download the unstable version from SVN, use the following command:</p>
+	<p><code>svn co svn://svn.linuxfromscratch.org/LFS/trunk LFS</code></p>
