Re: [Subclipse-dev] svn-ant Anyone on this list involved with this project?

I am ready to get involved. I see svn-ant as a really important tool.
Both subversion and ant are really useful, and svn-ant is that little
bit of magic that is required to make it all work seamlessly.

Obviously, it is not all rosy. Ant is not always that easy to use, and
certainly can be difficult to extend. svn-ant relies on client adapters
that can be tricky to configure/obtain. However, I am of the opinion
that svn-ant is the perfect place to hide all those intricacies from the
user and make it really easy to script against a subversion repository.

Anyway, sign me up. I'll try to help in any way I can.
