Well I use perforce for all my code development I release to CPAN.

But my Net::LDAP module has started to gain a large community. To handle this
I wrote a script (quick hack) which mirrored the perforce repository
into CVS on sourceforge.

This gives me, the developer, use of the tool I feel is best for
the job and also others get CVS read-only access to any changes as
I make them.
