Hello my name is Edward Morden and I am a bit concerned about the
abbreviation "SVN" which belongs to the program Subversion.
For me its really unclear why you chose "SVN". The "SV" is destinct cause
of *S**ub**V**ersion* but where did you get the "N" from?
What is the "N" supposed to mean? I looked though all the articles and even
wikipedia but nowhere I can find an explanation.
I would really be happy to recieve a email from you with your ideas behind
the abbrevation "SVN".
From a logical view it makes not really sense and seems to only confuse the
users of SubVersion.
I would also suggest to think about renaming the abbrevation to "SV" which
would be the best solution.

Yours sincerely,

Edward Morden
