Hmm, I wondered this a few times, maybe a good moment to bring this up:
Why aren't you using git? I'm not a git expert at all, so I can't defend
the idea very well - but I think it would be a lot better suited for
the extensive work being done by many parties. It would also be a lot
easier to "mirror" it. Maybe someone with more experience with git
can explain the benefits that git would have over svn?
