As I already explained to Karl: That I can easily understand. I have
worked on a number of open source projects, and have given the
answer "I don't have the time to work on this" quite often myself.
I try to avoid giving the answer "this is not a bug" when the
answer really is "I don't have time to fix it".

My initial communication was caused by the bold red letters
"We use the "Buddy System" for filing issues."
I contacted the IRC channel, and they told me to contact
the mailing list. I contacted the mailing list, asking if
I may file a bug report. Instead of your answer, I got the
answer "there really isn't a bug in subversion, so please
don't file a bug report".

Regards,
Martin
