I would like to do so.

This is a very nice and huge offer :-)

I want to add some information, that was given by 
Clifford Wolf on LinuxTag 2004 in Karlsruhe (Germany).
He presented SubMaster: a tool, that was developed 
as a supplement for SubVersion to get a better 
infrastructure for development on the bazaar.


They want to fulfil the following requirements:
- Everyone must have the possibility to send 
- There must be no way for contributions to be 
lost or ignored
- Creating and sending contributions must be as 
easy as possible

Instead of sending eMails to the *commiter*,
who then feeds the central repository,
one uploads contributions to the SubMaster-Server,
via SubMaster client (command line tool) or
directly via *normal* SVN commands.
The SubMaster Server acts as a staging platform to 
collect all contributions. It has a rating system 
included. It's a cgi-based web application written in 
plain perl.

I haven't worked with SubMaster since now,
so I can not say, wether it's simple enough to 
get used by everyone.

But I would like to test it.

Is it possible to use both tools (SVN and SM) 
on your server? Are you interested in doing so?
