I don't have the time to do more than occasional development with
SvnAnt, and would welcome some help from JP, Matt Doran, and Jeremy
Whitlock. The day job and Subversion 1.3 has had me busy of late,
such that I haven't had the opportunity to track down the last SvnAnt
test failures I'm seeing with the Subversion command-line client
adapter on Linux. Given the extended delay, we may as well accept
some new code before cutting SvnAnt 1.0, especially code which comes
with automated regression tests.
