Letter of Introduction

Hi. I've been lurking on the subversion-dev mailing list for about
a week, and it's time for the obligatory introduction.

I've been developing on Unix and Linux for way too long (started with
6th Edition Unix). About equal parts kernel and userland work. My
primary language these days is C++, but I'm still fluent in C.

Used quite a few source control systems, RCS, SCCS, CVS, Perforce, and
a couple in-house systems: SGI's ptools and Convex's MCS, which was, I
believe, Brian Berliner's inspiration for CVS. I've never implemented
or maintained any of those, and I've only administrated projects under
Perforce, which is my favorite (aside from its closed-sourcedness).

I would like to get involved in the coding and design of subversion if
possible. I've read the design doc and about 1/4th of the email
archives so far, and I'm impressed.

I'm taking a vacation the last week of September, and if it's possible
to get started that quickly, I'd like to spend that week working
basically full-time on coming up to speed on and contributing to
subversion. (Don't worry, I won't disappear on October 1, I'll just
downshift to part-time.)

So, what needs to be done? The TASKS file looks pretty useless right
now. If nothing else, I can flesh out the TASKS file. (-:
