Will subversion participate in Google Summer of Code 2010?

Hi!

Google Summer of Code is on for 2010 [1]. Is there any interest in
participating this year? If so, I've found that the mentoring
application deadline is 12 march. [2]

Since we're part of ASF, perhaps an application should go
through them? [3]

I've tried locating the GSoC ideas pages for 2009 but it seems to have
got lost in the move to apache.org. My own suggestions (given what I
know of subversion so far) would be:

Implementing a tree conflict resolver
---------------------------------------
This task probably should have editor-v2 available. Perhaps the task
could be defined as doing some vital parts of editor-v2 and continue
with a TC resolver once finished with the editor. And yes, I have no
notion whatsoever about the time frame required for the editor-work.

Replacing externals with something similar of ClearCases views
----------------------------------------------------------------
I overheard a conversation between Senthil and Bert on IRC where Bert
mentioned the views concept of ClearCase. [4] I want something like
externals but without the edge cases of file externals and with the
externals nodes being more like regular nodes.

Patch queues
--------------
Some kind of quilt functionality for local storage of work-in-progress.
Probably needs to have most the WC-NG parts stable.

The views concept and TC resolver was in the GSoC 2009 ideas page IIRC.

If the subversion community is interested in participating, I'm looking
forward to compete in a friendly fashion for one of the Student
Developer positions.

cheers,
Daniel
