I assume this was sent to me not for privacy but just to avoid our moderation.

I'm not subscribed to SVN mailing lists, so answering off-list.

>Out of curiosity, how are completely non-Latin languages affected by our CLI?
Badly. URL quoting rules, for example, make a simple word ("ΤΕΣΤ" -
"test" in Russian) look like this: "%D0%A2%D0%B5%D1%81%D1%82".
Generally, people try to avoid using Russian names for directories and
files.

BTW, and there are some bugs with mod_svn and SVNParentPath. It
doesn't work if repository name is in Russian locale.

>Like, do Russians have to completely switch their input method in
>order to type out COMMITTED in Latin?
No, we need just to switch keyboard layout (by pressing ctrl-shift or
alt-shift or caps lock or something else).
