may i suggest to postpone the following issues past 1.0:


and go beta if the remaining "critical" ones are done

there is two kinds of stability:
- data is safe and accessible:
  i consider it as stable, as i never heard of
  somebody who lost a repository recently.
  and berkely db is definitely known as very
  reliable. so the data store is safe.
- the interfaces are stable
  you can just make it stable
  but svn 2.0 does NOT need to have
  the same interfaces, otherwise
  it will end up as one of the unusable
  unix-dinosaurs where one wrong decision
  gets dragged along for years.
  don't have the illusion of doing
  it perfect for 1.0.

but i still think svn has less crashes than linux. and the majorities
of issues have nothing to do with crashes.

this is the only point we disagree.
labes are important. and features is not any more important for 1.0.
