Why did you choose SVN? It's not any better than CVS, it has the same
lacks, like not being able to manage unix rights, which is really the
basic. Why don't you upgrade to Git or Mercurial which are REALLY a LOT

The very big advantage of Git is that everybody can have it's own public
repository and just send you the URL so you can pull from it.

This is a VERY good idea, and I think it will help a lot to improve the
pear package. Thanks for writing this.
