I understand that this is not my business at all :)
But anyway, IMHO, you should take GPL-free effort as an example.
When you visit http://wiki.freebsd.org/GPLinBase you easily can see what
going to be dumped, why, and with what it's going to be replaced.
What I mean exactly - throw emails to mail list like this, telling that we
need to specify software list for removal, provide page in wiki, with each
software listed, propose something in exchange, collect not opinions, but
real usage examples, and some stats, like "feature A is used by approx 100
peoples". Or "Feature B is used by 3 peoples, but there's no replace ATM".
If you think it's time to move from CVS, create page in wiki, find most
frequent use cases, think about replacing them with other tools,
collaborate with peoples, create simple pro/con table with free editing.
I'm sure that very few peoples, or even no one know _every_ usage of
FreeBSD base, so deep investigating on each item is would be necessary.
That's only my 2c.
