very cool. we'll likely look into transitioning following the next
language bindings rel coming up soon, at a point where we can freeze the
cvs repository long enough to get a copy of it up at gnome. (rather than
import we'd like to have the cvs histories and all brought in if

i'm looking around at the the information about the gnome repositories
and stuff now so that i'll have an idea of the process. currently we
have 4 active developers, muppet (scott arrington,) kaffee (torsten
schoenfeld,) ebassi (emmanuele bassi,) and myself. (don't think i've
left anyone out that's recently contributed.) we have 19 perl bindings
modules comprising around ~8 megs of source, examples, etc.

i used google to search this list for mention of subversion and didn't
get any hits. since i've done the same for and found
plenty of references to it in various places and pretty much figured the
above out. i understand the desire for uniformity. 

thanks again,
