Subversion cygwin package maintainer

Hey y'all,

I just joined the list. I've been watching this project from afar for about a
year now. I had tried and failed to get some earlier versions installed from
RPMs due to lib conflicts, and I recently buckled down and built from source to
get a client and server built and installed. I've only had an SVN repository for
a few days but I really like it. I've also been using Subclipse, since the main
project I'm working on at home is Java.

I ran into a locking problem on my Eclipse workspace, which is on a Windows box.
I ended up having to build the cygwin version in order to do the cleanup, which
made me wonder if there is already someone who is on tap to be a maintainer of
the cygwin package? If there is not, I would be willing to be the official
cygwin package maintainer. Particularly if you are going into beta and want a
lot of eyes on all the versions, it might help if the SVN client could be
installed with one click from Cygwin setup.

I was able to build with only one problem, the issue I have seen in the mailing
list archives about neon spuriously reporting failure to find libxml/parser.h .
I saw references to it working with expat and without libxml2, so I had to
uninstall libxml2 and then it configured and built. Having already built it, I
thought why not go to the extra effort of packaging it and getting it in the
official cygwin package list? I haven't done a lot of giving back to the OS
community in my career, so why not now? I'm thinking at first only doing the
client and then perhaps later on getting on the more complex task of the server.

So the questions are two: Is there already someone doing this? Do y'all think
this is a good idea? If no one is doing it and it is deemed a thing to do, I'm
willing to do it.
