Hi Satabdi,

I'm glad you're interested in contributing to Subversion as part of OPW!

Since Subversion joined OPW a little late, we're a bit behind schedule,
but don't let that worry you.

First off, I'd recommend to familiarize yourself with the Subversion
community guide at http://subversion.apache.org/docs/community-guide/
This guide contains plenty of information for new contributors.

How familiar are you with Subversion? Have you used Subversion before
in any of your own software projects? Have you used other version
control systems such as git or Mercurial?

Regarding your project idea about making the 'svn diff' subcommand
work better with third party diff programs, have you already used
'svn diff' with a third party diff program?

Please note that as a project we prefer to keep any communication which
doesn't involve sensitive or private matters on the dev@ list (i.e 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.
