I'm very pleased to say that I've just been granted with a partial commit bit for the Subversion source code. The developers have had enough of me popping up on the mailing list talking about issues with the Perl bindings and posting patches, and have given me the necessary access rights to fix and improve things myself.
As is traditional, my first commit was to the list of Subversion committers. This ensures that the ACLs are set up correctly and so on.
I'll be working on the perl-bindings-improvements branch, making sure that they're up to date with respect to the rest of Subversion, and that they behave as "Perlishly" as possible for anyone else who needs to interoperate with Subversion repositories using Perl.
