Tortoise is Beatiful - Job / Contract opportunity for TortoiseSVN related project.

Hi all, I didn't know how else to get ahold of the main developers so I am
posting to this list -- this is not an advertisement, please read.

I've been using SVN for a while now - as a developer, and the Tortoise is
especially nice; the way it is implemented as hook system into windows

My company is creating a document/content management system for corporate
professionals. In most respects, the system we are envisioning is identical to
SVN, and we would like it to work behind the scenes in explorer much the same
way Tortoise does. However, the system would primarily be working with Office
type documents (.doc, .xls, etc) instead of text (code). Also, we would be
simplifing and automating many of the features to make it easy for dummys to

So it looks like we may be building a custom app that runs over svn (or
perhaps even a custom protocol layer) and I thought who better to develop this
system than the guys who built Tortoise.

Anyone with significant experience/understanding of how Tortise is built is
welcome to respond. I would be interest to talk with anyone about the overall
project and general estimates of budget and timeline for what we want to do.

Lastly, as svn and tortoise are open source projects I would really like to
talk with the main developers to discuss licensing issues because we would
would probably want to build our app on a lot of the tortoise base - but need
to make sure we do it legally.

Thanks, and please forward this to the appropriate people if you know them.
