No concerns here (I knew we were not gonna get it done within
6 months :P), just a request.

I'd like you wc-ng guys to help HuiHuang a little.
I know this may sound like extra work on top of what you're
already going through but it's really needed.

The work he has been doing so far will be obsoleted by wc-ng.
I've asked him in #svn-dev today whether he'd rather continue
his task in wc-ng, and he said yes.

He has built up familiarity with the code base over the last
few weeks. But he will still need assistance with figuring
out how his problem space (generate a single commit from multiple
working copies) applies to wc-ng.

I bet you'll say "this is a solved problem" since the design
of the db is aimed towards dealing with multiple disjoint
working copies anyway. But that's not the point.

The point is that huihaung could shift his focus from trying
to get this to work with access batons to starting to fill
in the bits which are still missing until we can actually run

  svn commit wc1/ wc2/

with wc-ng. That is, I'd like to see him working on the
wc-ng transition of the commit code.

As his gsoc mentor, I should be the one advising him on this,
but I'm afraid I don't have the knowledge right now to help him.

Since hwright keeps bugging me about doing something with tree
conflicts and wc-ng (whatever that means), I'll probably build
up at least a bit of domain knowledge in the coming weeks, so
I'll try to make this as little of an extra burden for Hyrum and
you as I can.

I'd expect huihuang to ask a few questions about wc-ng soon, and
you answering them on this list would be highly appreciated.
It might also help others who don't know much about wc-ng yet.
