Subversion doesn't have any i18n at all, at the moment. While it is
on the goals list, all developers are currently working on other
things; no one is actively making i18n happen yet.

Would you be interested in helping with it? ("Helping" is putting it
charitably -- you'd really have to take complete ownership of the i18n
issue, and figure out what needs to be done throughout Subversion.)

It would be wonderful to have any volunteer step forward for this --
otherwise, the i18n work will almost surely have to be put off until
post-1.0. That wouldn't be horrible, since this is the sort of thing
that _can_ be added later without huge code perturbance, however, it
would be nice to avoid the delay.
