Oh, this list isn't for development in general. It's for the
development of Subversion itself -- that is, the code for which the
Subversion maintainers have consciously taken responsibility.

It's great to see someone else implementing Subversion or WebDAV
implementations, and we're happy to help... But on the users@ list,
because it's about the usage of Subversion and/or its APIs, not about
the development of Subversion. You are "using" the Subversion and/or
WebDAV protocols, hence "users@". If you were talking about a patch to
Subversion's own code, for example, then dev@ would be the place.

Well, I don't remember everything our server does to get the client to
displays errors, but have you sniffed the wire protocol for examples?
See http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#net-trace for more.
