It think I get you; saying something is *an* RTC, odd at best, saying  
something is *in* RTC, just fine.

Thanks for implementing the pull from svn.

We use jira to track all patches and issues, so it's natural to want  
to leverage it for this.  However, I like a having STATUS in svn  
that's posted regularly as we could use it track things like:
  - What the next releases are (1.1.1 and 1.2 for example)
  - When they may come out
  - Who is release manager
  - Any open issues or discussions
  - Upcoming events (bofs, user-groups and the like)
  - more...
