Hi, the mentoring-type person would be me :)
I'm happy to hear you're interested in improving 'svn help'.
I put together the project ideas list in a hurry to get something
up on the website ASAP, since the application deadline is rather close.
So I may have missed some potentially projects suitable for OPW.
If you find that improving 'svn help' is not a suitable project
for you we can try to find something else if you prefer.
Most coding tasks in Subversion require knowledge of the C programming
language. I've tried to come up with project ideas that don't require
intimate knowledge of C in case an OPW applicant doesn't already know C.
Neither the bindings and 'svn help' project ideas strictly require C skills
and I'm happy to help out wherever C skills are necessary.
I hope you'll find an interesting project to work on.
If you have any questions just ask me. Note that as a project we
prefer to keep any communication which doesn't involve sensitive
or private matters on this list, which is publicly archived, so
that everyone involved can stay on top of what's going on.
I'm 'stsp' in #svn-dev on freenode, BTW. I'll try to be reachable
for you there as well, as far as my current schedule permits.
