Yes, I care. We have a large body of code written mostly in Visual
FoxPro, which is all stored in a 400MB VSS repository (also known as a
400MB timebomb).

The sooner this is in Subversion the better, but VFP will only talk via
the SCC API. With VFP, there are specific file type conversions going
on, so 'manual' source control using SVN.EXE has its own problems. I
would love to help with anything that will make the SCC API work.

I was going to try Subway, but as you say, it has gone quiet. I also
used to be quite a competent C/C++ programmer, so hopefully I could be
of help there. In fact, I could sign the required NDA here, since I
don't have any conflicts of interest in the area of source control. How
long did it take?

I most certainly can aid in the areas of TESTING, and documentation.
Also, if you don't have anything set up for this yet, I can provide
hosting for distribution and documentation of an SCC provider, quite
possibly on its own domain name. This is important since presumably a
non-open-source project cannot be hosted on sourceforge or tigris!!

Incidentally, have you tried contacting Tor Hovland about pooling
resources? He might be in the same situation as me, not having the time
to drive such a project, but quite willing to help, and Subway source
code could be a big boost.
