MySQL choosing subversion for version control?

With all the noise regarding bitkeeper no longer being able to be utilised by Open Source projects, MySQL are looking at using the Subversion version control software.

infoworld caught on that other open-source projects are facing a decision about bitkeeper besides the linux kernel. while the article mentions we’re looking at subversion as an alternative for mysql server development, i don’t imagine that will be our long-term solution. distributed version control is just too nice. but our gui team has been using subversion for their projects for quite a while, and we are using it in many other places.

You have to love Larry's marketing spin on the saga that is brewing.
