About the svn access, all centralized VCS's are meant for
dictatorships. If the gnome foundation really wants to improve the
situation, i recommend moving to git or some other non-distributed VCS
instead of brain-dead centralized svn for the following reason:
At one point, there will always be the need for *someone* to be able to
say "This is foo version 3.14159", whatever is used.
I use git since about a month, and git-svn for ekiga work since about
two weeks, so I can say that git is definitely wonderfully light, fast,
and efficient. I hated cvs, I hate svn, but I love it.
That being said, I can't help but notice that svn itself isn't the cause
of the problem : I was added as a code contributor to the wormux project
(hosted on gna!, using svn) by one of the developpers, and it took one
hour (read again: hour -- not year, not month, not week, not day) before
the change took effect.
So in my opinion, discussing about git vs svn isn't on-topic here.
