You need the appropriate role in the Subversion project on tigris.org,
which I've granted to you both.

How does the introduction of named parameters impact backwards
compatibility? (I assume it doesn't have to.)
Sounds like a breakdown of who's doing what is forming:
- John has committed some outstanding patches against the bindings,
which will be cleaned up a touch more.
- Nik is helping out with that cleanup, and will work on API named
- John will enhance the test suite.
Re-writing 'svn' in Perl and excercising it (perhaps using portions of
the existing cmdline test suite?) sounds like a really good test
suite and example of how to use the bindings.
