An easy move for hosting sites to make is from CVS to Subversion.  The
command set is similar, much of the language and "mental pictures" are
similar (e.g., what a "checkout" means, what branches and tags are,
etc), and the end user tools are *far* more up to date.

When I see a project hosting site offering only CVS, it definitely
gives me a "not yet ready for prime time" vibe.  We don't even have
CVS installed on most of our development systems anymore, just to give
a data point.

Git might help.  I honestly couldn't say.  I wouldn't use it
personally, but that's just me.
