   Since I'm new around here, let me introduce myself with few details.

Who am I:

   My name is Jacek Prucia (don't bother trying to spell that out: it's a
polish language ;). I'm a programmer (but I was working as system
administrator) at Linux orientated company, I live in Poland (east Europe),
where I'm an active member of Linux community (member of local LUG, article
writer and so on).

My interest in version control:

   Throughout my work I was involved in managing (as administrator) and
using (as programmer) various CVS repositories. I also wrote a patch for
CVS which resides at: http://cvsbookmarks.sourceforge.net because I was
(and somehow still I am) disappointed with CVS "user space" issues.

My role in the project (order matters):

- early user
- discuss ideas, do design
- write small patches
- maybe even do some code

My level of effort:

- mailing list, code: lurking around,
- early using: part of full-time job

Some thoughs regarding Subversion Design Document:

   There's a lot of "right" concepts there, like: graceful handling of
binary files, i18n support, client library (easier development of client
applications, integrating subversion into various IDE's out there), and so
on. In fact this document addresses all features that oryginal CVS was

However there's one issue that isn't actually that clear for me. The need
of stacking mod_dav AND mod_dav_svn in Apache2.0 server looks a little bit
like bloat. I didn't used WebDAV before so I might be wrong on that
subject, but let me play around with subversion until I'll have clear
