We're always looking for people with experience with other systems, as
they often bring interesting perspectives to Subversion, but I think
you might have better luck thinking about what you're trying to
accomplish and how that might be done in Subversion as it stands
today, and then finding small ways you can improve on that, as opposed
to starting out with huge features you've used in other systems. It's
unlikely that the best way to accomplish these kind of tasks in
Subversion is going to be the implementation of the exact features
that you used to accomplish them in Subversion, simply because the
system is so different from what you're used to in clearcase.

So, if you could start with what you're trying to accomplish, and go
from there to ways that we can make Subversion better accomplish those
goals, that might be more productive.
