Hi all,

A (very) short presentation: Nadim, 35, loves perl and C++, writes software
for a living, plays CS every wednsday, uses Win2K, SSafe, have tried CVS
both stink. I am quite direct so expect hot debates (I think all and
everything can get better and complaining sometimes helps)

Subversion is a great idea BUT:

- The documentation on how to get it to work is, well I don't find words
arsh enough. Specially when using Win32. OK there are binaries for Win32 but
that not much help. Often good programs get forgotten because they are har
to install or start working with.

- I18N, what a bad idea! I am born tunisian, raised in France, live in
sweden and travel extensively. English is just fine for software. Who cares
if some pine head frenchy doesn't like commands in english. I think there is
better way to spend ones time and my experience with I18N programs is not

- In arch, there is a way to tag a file so arch can see if it has been moved
or renamed. that's a great idea. Is it planned in SVN?

- Planned in SVN,but with low priority, is the "local" repository, so the
john dirty finger can write gluy software and have version control over it
but only check it in when he has done some cleaning. That is the most
important feature an revision system could ever have. RCS are not used
because one can't have an easy way to write "ugly" software and not show it
to the world. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make this an important goal. I am
willing to invest of my time if needed. On should by default use the "local"
repository and if needed add an argument to the command so the "main"
repository is used.

- The mailling list is a spam generator, I give a better example: wxWindows
send 1 or 2 mails per days containing in turn 10-20 mails and at the top of
the mail a list over the contents. something to think about.

-who does what, when and how? How does one help?
