Right (your last question, that is).

You're quoting a private mail out of context, so what I said above
probably won't make sense to most people here :-).

The original mail was sent by a friendly watcher to some CollabNet
ppl, warning us that if we're going to link MySQL with the Subversion
we ship, we might need to consult a lawyer first. My response simply
means "Thanks, we're not planning to do that anytime soon, so we'll
cross that bridge if/when we come to it."

That doesn't mean your code isn't wanted by the Subversion project
(which includes everyone working on SVN, not just CollabNet

But you wouldn't expect CollabNet to be making business plans based on
unfinished code being written by someone over whom it has little or no
influence, would you? :-)
