I think these are themes because they currently are having the most
impact on enterprises, but they are not nearly the extent of what
enterprises want from Subversion. Centralized configuration control is
an example as you've mentioned, but there are others.

I'm about to start an effort that I hope will help galvanize input from
enterprises to make their desires more clear as well as provide a means
for community ideas to be vetted by enterprises. I'd like to see this
also work as a means of gathering financial support to get some of the
things they see as critical implemented. I've talked to a few of you at
the Subversion Conference about this and have had great responses from
the enterprises that I've interacted with since then. CollabNet has
interacted with a large number of enterprises that we'll engage in this
effort. Hopefully this can help with the effort to define a roadmap for
the community as I'm sure it will help with CollabNet's own roadmap for
contributions. Stay tuned!
