hehe... here I am, going thru the days email (after a serious amount of glen
morangie, mind you), replying here and there... and what do you know?
Psychic Jim tells all :-)
I hope that my previous emails have cleared up some of the operation.
Disclaimer: as I see it.
Please ask questions and point out concerns. Obviously, if Jim and Karl
aren't intimate with these details, then it means one of three things: 1) it
hasn't been discussed before, 2) I have not been proactive enough, or 3) I
have been unclear in my explanations.
I tend to take (2). mod_dav_svn is starting to take form, so this is shaking
out, and we can start to mess around with what it really means. I doubt that
I'll have something meaningful before leaving for ApacheCon, but the week of
October 30th (first week of November), we will have an Apache-based server
that people can do a checkout from an SVN repository. As this comes
together, it should become clear. Worst part is that I doc for hell, unlike
Karl/Jim/Ben. Comments for clarity, sure. But proactive doc? Arg. They kick
my butt... I "feel my way" thru code, so advanced doc doesn't work.
Ah well. Recall the glen morangie. Just ask questions. I can answer :-)
