I would actually describe Subversion as late alpha, since it is usable now for 
the vast majority of cases.  Although it is not feature complete, it has a solid 
set of tools already and can be used as a replacement for CVS right now.  I am 
already in the process of moving my personal development into a SVN repository, 
as well as using a script someone else wrote to create a local repository of the 
APC (All Perl Changes) so I can test my Perl modules vs. any release of Perl 
from early 5.000 days up to bleadperl (5.9.x).

The development team is very well organized and keep to a pretty tight schedule 
(2 weeks per cycle), and have a very good sense of what needs to happen to get 
Subversion over the finish line with their own sanity intact.
