SVN may be more active but it still doesn't have the features that CVSNT 
users take for granted like mergepoints, reserved mode and changesets - let 
alone more advanced features like audit.

I disagree - from what i can see it's still just the collabnet employees. 
The main thing driving SVN migration is developers love of the 'new thing' 
and heavy promotion by o'rielly who is on the collabnet board and has 
therefore a vested interest in it's success.
