Sure. If you've got a patch which improves something in the
Subversion source code, such as a build or install script, please
submit it. Your first email sounded like you wanted to file an issue
stating that the Subversion project should maintain a package in a
repository somewhere. That isn't the role of the project, but the
role of individual volunteers. If you think Subversion could be
included in the PyPI index, feel free to submit it.
