I would like to at least talk with you about the design of this. I can't
actively contribute at the moment, but that may change shortly.

As I mentioned back when I introduced myself to the list, I'm working on
a possible competitor to subversion (at the time, we called in Coven;
due to a name collision, we renamed in to Synedra), which is written
entirely in Java. We've got a lot of functionality - we're slightly
ahead of subversion in some places, and quite a bit behind in others
(particularly WebDAV/DeltaV).

I'd like, as much as possible, to create a situation where Synedra (my
system) and Subversion can interact nicely with one another. We're
looking at clients and UIs right now, so I'm familiar with the top-level
issues of how to present a repository with proper branches (like
Subversion and Synedra, and unlike CVS) to users.

I'm not suggesting cooperating on this just to benefit my project, but
because I think we can share a lot of benefit if we have a common
interface available. In particular, we're working on integration with
a variety of programming tools (one IBM specific, plus xemacs, JEdit,
and maybe VIM). If we can work out a common interface through a
combination of Java and WebDAV, then subversion can adopt our code
when we go open-source (probably around October).

If you're willing to work together on this, please drop me a note, and
we can talk about the design.

By the way, Synedra now has a public website... It's not a great one,
but at least there are some nice descriptive docs there.
