OWP: Introduction for Gabriela Gibson

Dear All,

My name is Gabriela Gibson and I've applied for the internship with
Subversion under the Gnome Outreach for Women Program.

I am an ex-wizardess who used to haunt a long-lost MUD. I've not
programmed in a while, although I've *intended* to join more than one
open-source project in the past. I've been using linux since 1997.

For my initial submission I have written a test for issue 4263 which
I'll mail shortly. I admit that I struggled to figure out how to
connect gdb to svnrdump in my build tree (since svnrdump is actually a
shell script, and svnrdump reads from stdin) but I am now working on a
fix for 4263.

BTW, I noticed that the python tests in subversion/tests/cmdline/
don't support a "list" parameter as suggested in
subversion/tests/README. Is there a reason for this? Otherwise, this
might something I could fix.

I don't know what I would be doing for my project yet, because I
realise that the Subversion codebase is large and complicated - my
learning curve has been both long and steep. However, I feel that I'm
reaching the point where I can contribute to the project.

Regards

Gabriela
