There are so many assumptions in that last sentence, I hardly know
where to start :-). But you probably know that already.

Have you considered posting here seeking a commercial Subversion
support contract? (I think it would also be appropriate to post to
dev@ about that. If such posts get too numerous, we can eventually
create a separate list, but I don't think it's a problem right now.)

I'm pretty sure CollabNet only does Subversion support as part of a
larger contract involving our SourceCast software suite; but I'll pass
your message on to make sure.

Yep, we are in Beta, with 1.0 scheduled for Feb. 23rd.
