I'm sorry, but what makes you think that you are *not* duplicating
effort? There's svnforum.org, which does the very same you do now. Can
you tell us what exactly is new/different on your site?

Can you share those ideas? Maybe get some feedback before you put
everything online?

Please describe the "void" that you feel. What exactly is missing?

I'm sorry, but to me this seems just like a lame excuse to try to make
some money of other peoples work.
I've checked your blog, and while it's not that interesting, the one
thing that came to mind when I scanned over some articles there is that
the whole site is mostly MFA.
Apart from that: when you first announced dotnetsvn, I tried to check it
out. I tried some time later again, and just now again. The server is
either completely down or not reachable. And it never was. That clearly
shows that you are not really interested in your own projects and that
you don't follow through with them. Otherwise you would have noticed
long ago that the whole server isn't reachable.

Another thing: I'd like to have people discussing stuff on our mailing
lists so I can read what they post. There might be a bug in TSVN which I
have to fix, or I might get an idea on how to improve TSVN so the people
won't have the problems they're discussing about. If the users would do
that spread all over multiple forums and other places, I would miss that
important information.
