Re: the current tasklist

Just reviewing some mail in my box, and came across Ben's TODO list
for the immediate Subversion-ish future. Thanks to the developers in
this community, we've banged out most of the problems on this list.

Of course, now the things we're dealing with are fairly large things.
Props over DAV has been a large item on Greg's plate for some time,
there are plenty of discussion about the status command. Anchors and
targets are about to be revisited. And that's only a handful of the
vast quantity of tasks needed before we can comfortably say the magic
"1.0" words (or, is that the magic "Revision xxx" words?).

Interestingly enough, there are still some "Quick and Easy" tasks that
haven't been accomplished. LIST LURKERS: If you've been waiting for a
place to make small initial contributions to the project, your patches
for those Quick and Easy tasks are welcome, and we promise to praise
you publicly if you do a satisfactory job! Also, Linus Torvalds
himself will send you an autographed mousepad. And then there's the
anonymous contributions to your Swiss bank account. Oh, did I
mention the company car you get?

I'm so full of myself today... :-)

Ben's list follows (with my edits)

---------------------------------------------------------------------
> Critical Network-related Bugs

> * 411: cannot checkout arbitrary revision, only HEAD.

Fixed in Revision 77 (Joe)

> * 382/437: dav props are currently hacky... and still broken.

Still in progress. (GStein)

> * 472: updates can fail, if too much svndiff data, or too many files.

Marked as a duplicate of 481. Fixed, but not with the degree of
efficiency Greg Stein would like to see. (Joe)

> * 475: long log messages can make commits fail.

Fixed in Revision 82. (C-Mike)

> Other Critical Bugs
> -------------------
>
> * 477: need automated db maintenance (db_archive, BACKUPS)

Done, as per-commit archival/cleanup scripts. (Ben)

> * 387: make python tests run over dav

Done -- that is, tests that fail are doing so because of actual bugs
in the code. (Mostly Ben and Karl, a little C-Mike)

> * 476: unpredictable need to run db_recover?

Closed as Invalid.

> * 454: problems checking out repository subdir -- still
> reproducible?

Still in progress. (C-Mike)

> Quick and Easy
> --------------
>
> * 471: strip trailing / from URLs

Done. (C-Mike)

> * 474: better authentication error message

Not done.

> * 447: better out-of-date error message

Not done.
