Re: Backends...

I agree this is very dangerous idea, separation of layers is valid
concern. We will probably just end up storing all our metadata in the
oracle tables and leave subversion to simply do what it is meant for. Do
you see fsfs becoming the standard for subversion? Is there any work
being down using alternate backends?

Thanks for your reply, and many thanks for a great book and product!
