Re: Feature Request: Revision Properties at Commit Time

I'd me more than happy to help out with this work. Caveats: While I
have over 25 years of working in OS internals and vast amounts of C
coding experience, I know zilch about the svn code base and internal
architecture, so this offer of *help* might be more of a hinderance
than anything :)
