Julian,

Thanks, if you can, please give me a couple of weeks to think about it
and work on some diagrams.  I also want to speak with people that use
SVN that I work with to make sure I am not coming up with ideas in a
bubble. Also if anyone has advice or opinions on this forum, feel free
to share them in the mean time.  I will do my best to research what is
already requested on the forum to come up with the requirement or
desired capability.

Thanks,

Danny
