Greetings fellow subversives.

My name is Brian Fitzpatrick (most people call me Fitz). I know (and
used to with) Karl Fogel and Ben Sussman. Nowadays, I'm a Consulting
Engineer with Apple's iServices group, and I design and write OO
Web-based applications using Apple's WebObjects (Wow, do I sound like
a commercial or what? Fred, what *do* they put in the Kool-aid on
Apple's campus?).

So how do I figure into subversion on the technical end? Well, I've
been developing software full-time for about 7 years now, and active
in both using and developing Open Source software (using CVS, of
course). I use CVS everyday in just about everything that I
do. Several years ago, at Karl's suggestion, I even put my home
directory into CVS, and now I wouldn't write anything longer than a
grocery list without putting it into revision control--I'm hooked. And
while CVS has rescued me from the gaping maw of hell more than once,
I'm really looking forward to addressing CVS's shortcomings and
problems in the context of Subversion.

As far as my contribution to Subversion, I will probably play a rather
limited role due to time constraints--something on the order of a few
evenings a week and some time on the weekends. I'll probably just
dabble about in whatever is going on until I find an area or component
that interests me in particular. Or until Karl gives me something in
particular to do. Right Karl? :)

Well, I think that just about covers it. See ya'll around,
