There is no 'one', really. Post the stuff to this (dev) list, and
someone will claim it. In fact, I think I said I'd offer to claim it
so long as SVN-critical tasks don't bar me from doing so. And if I
claim it, you can bet Karl Fogel and Ben Collins-Sussman are
unofficially claiming it, too (since they each sit fewer than 10 feet
from me on a daily basis). Ding! 3 peer reviewers for the price
of...none!

Well, I don't suppose we can say much about that. :-) If you're
planning to support multiple version control systems, then "jsvn"
might not be the most accurate name, but whatever.

Hm. I guess my feelings are that if you want total control over
whatever repository you store your work in, go create a new
SourceForge project. However, if you're willing to temporarily
relinquish a bit of that control in exchange for having all the
followers of this list as peer reviewers, you should consider the
patch-submission process here.

Having grown to trust the technical skills of many of my companions on
this list more so than my own unreviewed ideas, I personally would
stick with this community.
