That would be nice. TBD would suffice:-)

I'll dig into this when I get back to this issue.

Not sure what you mean here, but what halted me was the idea that a given URL
"name" can point to different nodes over time. wooaa. I planned on the ACLs
being contained outside subversion at first. No No No. Once I thought about it,
I freaked and stopped. It has to be in the Repos to work.

I guess what I'm asking is: do you guys have a design of some sort for ACLs. Or
even a loose set of requirements.

As for patches:-)
I'm currently working on building a SQL FS. Yes, I really am.
Patches are a ways off. I'm spinning up a little slower than I had hoped but
I'm making progress.
I changed my approach when cmpilato started working on the skel separation and I
learned of the unbounded key issue.
That reminds me, I need to update. It's been hours. Mike could had checked in
several hundred files by now:-)
So while all that is fleshing out, I'm playing with how to ask the basic
ancestry/hierarchy questions of a SQL store and what that SQL store should look
like. Once I can defend my approach "OH and I have one:-)", I will post ERDs
and perhaps a few SQL scripts to demonstrate the basic query accesses I will
need. I will most likely have more tables than the BDB FS has.

woooaaa sorry to switch subjects on you.

Thanks for the response,
