Version Control

I'd really like as much of the site as possible to be under some revision control system, be it CVS, SVN or whatever. However, the question really is where to host it? We could continue using CVS and, or some other setup. I'd really like to have the repository be on a separate host to the website, though, but I'm open to ideas. [Silver]
