We are probably several hundred people here on the Subversion mailing list,
all wanting to contribute to this goal you think is so bad. We are all here
because we feel like participating.

We've all the opportunity to join in and influence the design choices and
implementation specifics. And lots of us have, in various degrees of course.

I can't of course speak for anyone else here, but this is an open source
project and this project scratches the itch "CVS isn't quite up to its task
let's improve it".

You're talking about a different itch that takes a different scratch. I
believe that's why you are hacking on Arch while we sit in the Subversion

It's not about good or bad, right or wrong. It is about different goals and
different views on how to reach them.

Please talk about specific Subversion issues or take it elsewhere. This list
floods beyond belief already in amount of postings, your off-topic unfocused
ramblings don't improve this situation one bit. Sorry for the harsh words,
but that's how I feel.
