Hello Folks...

Well, per the subversion participants page here is my "introduction"

Currently Im a R&D Manager for Agilent (ie. a PHB type), but in
previous roles I worked as multi-divisional CM strategist for HP
focusing on leverage and reuse.

Im quite familiar with a number of version control systems, where
I served as either the system administrator, system architect or just
a plain old user. This experience spans the range from toys (Visual
SourceUnsafe, RCS) to mainstream industrial tools like Clearcase to
the more unusual fringe tools (Aide-de-camp/TrueSoft C-sets)

Lately though Ive spent most of my time working with CVS. Some of
you from the CVS mailing lists might recall some of my complaining
about lack of merge meta-data etc in CVS or some of the other key
things CVS is missing.

Subversion. I think it has the potential to be a very big part
of the next generation of SCM tools for the open source community.

In terms of my participation/role for the project, well Ill admit
I dont have the time to do much coding these days. I figure the
best way I can contribute is to share my experience using a diverse
set of tools and working with large scale multi-product code reuse.
(Think 100's of developers on dozens of branches working from several
continents to produce a dozen different products all with different
release schedules)

something I think that subversion appears to be ideal for. Yeah!!

PS. Greg, thanks for mentioning Subversion in your DAV talk at
     the Open Source Conference, otherwise I wouldnt have known.

         When schemes are laid in advance, it is surprising
        how often the circumstances fit in with them.
