Excellent! That's very good to know. That's two of us now. I think we don't quite have critical mass yet, but we're getting closer. Do you know if any of those VisualSVN users are corporate/enterprise users who might be interested in participating in the consortium too?

(I'll also circulate this in some other places. However, I'm going to wait a bit; there are other things going on in the U.S. right now, and people -- including me -- are understandably focusing their attention on that.)
