I am just saying these are both still pretty vague.

1. You are talking about the website right? So I am saying throw together the HTML that shows what you want to see. Maybe that will stimulate some ideas. I am just saying for me, as more of just a user than you are, I would not care about seeing commits. I would want something higher level (like a Jira issue) for it to be of value to me.

2. Again vague. Isn't svn log a query? I am sure what you are thinking is not vague to you. Maybe if we could see what you were thinking for the previous point then the sort of thing you are looking for here would be more clear.

I am also not clear whose itch you are scratching here. If you are thinking about SVN users wanting to follow the project, I think higher level info would be needed. If you are just trying to build something for the SVN devs then that would be different but that is where the website part of this would be throwing me off as I cannot envision many of the SVN devs using it.
