Hi all,

I am a n00b hacker who uses svn for my major collaborative works[1].
I would like to contribute back to the svn community. It would be more
lovely if my contribution starts in GSoC. Actually I was planning to apply
as a student developer for Subversion in GSoC'10. But was a bit disappointed
that subversion may not participate in GSoC this year.

It would be really nice if the community replies with a positive answer!

Regards,
