I have been working with the sponsor to get the RFP in a coherent state, and
then I was going to announce to this list. You eager little beavers found
it before I had a chance to announce it.

So the process goes like this:

1. Sign up to be a registered developer at sourceXchange,

2. Become an active developer (this just gives us a way to pay you
if the sponsor chooses your proposal).

3. Submit a proposal on the RFP. This should be a document that gives the
sponsor an understanding of the qualifications you have to be able to complete
the work. ie for this RFP you should give all relevant
CVS/Subversion/DAV/DeltaV work that you have done in the past, and any other
relevant experience. Also in your proposal you should give some detail as to
the milestones and time frame that you are looking to complete the work in.
The sponsor does understand that the Subversion core is still being built, but
he would like to see a 'design document' as to how the WebDAV/DeltaV stuff
would be added.

4. The sponsor looks at all the proposals he gets in and chooses one of them.

5. The sponsor chooses a peer reviewer (this is a domain expert in Subversion/CVS and WebDAV) who would 'mentor' (read: answer any questions the developer
doing to work has on either subject, and review the proposed design ).

This is a quick explanation, but if others have questions please let me know

Here are a couple of links which will also help explain the process:
