That's the rub: they need to sign papers to make sure the FSF has
the copyright over the file. Once that's done, getting write access
is easy: get a savannah.gnu.org account (can be done online) and then
ask one of the administrators of the Emacs project to add them
to the people who get write-access.

In the mean time I intend to keep an eye on Subversion's vc-svn.el
to try and keep Emacs' own version uptodate.

Back in December 2001, I did a first attempt at getting VC working
with Subversion. I never distributed it and I later on learned that
Jim Blandy had made one of his own (not sure when he did it, tho).

The vc-svn.el I installed in Emacs has no code taken from Subversion's
vc-svn.el, although it does have a few ideas taken from there.
